First, let's assume you're using just authuser.php.  To force logins,
you simply set the read password for the group to be "id:*".  This
requires that a visitor be logged in before he/she is permitted to
view the page (and redirects the visitor to a login page if not logged

Now then, for the sql component- could you send me an example
md5-encrypted password record from the sql table?  It'd really help
if you could send a corresponding cleartext password for the as well,
but I can work with just the encrypted value.  With that information
I can give you the code that will authenticate logins against the
sql table (and I can possibly incorporate it directly into the
authuser.php script).
