PHP Log on to website

Posted 16 June 2010 - 04:25 PM

Hello,

I know the function for grabbing content, but I am having trouble with figuring out how to log into the site. It has a password protected area I need to retrieve financial info from...then download and sort that info.

Would anyone be able to offer some suggestions?

Thanks.

Hmmm, do you have permissions to access password protected section of said site? And it's probably not a real good (i.e; secure) idea to download financial information outside a secure stream like this.

Its not sensitive info and yes I do have access. I understand that and don't want anyone to have to write it for me. I was just hoping for an idea what I had to do rather than specific code. The link posted is more than I expected :)
