Does your host support .htaccess? This allows you set whole directories as 'login only'.
if it does, check out this tutorial -

it's probably more secure to use .htaccess through a mysql db.
there's a module for apache thats easy to install called mod_auth_mysql. To check if it's already on your server look for something like this in your httpd.conf:
LoadModule auth_mysql_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/mod_auth_mysql.so
or if you are running a debian linux server with apt, simply run:
apt-get install auth-mysql-module

Re: password protection
I set up a basic htaccess scipt at http://bumblebeeware.com/password/
Its one simple admin script, but great to build on. If you are on a unix server and want a simple pass protection its a good hack.
