    Not an expert on this having never used it myself.

    But, do you want to just have one user / pass combination that you give out to friends to access the same area or will people you dont know make up their own usernames / passwords - like they would on this forum for example?

    If the former then the easiest way to do it would be via htaccess and a htpasswd file:

    Source: http://www.weberdev.com/get_example-130.html

    You will also need a user/password generator e.g.
    http://www.htaccesstools.com/htpasswd-generator/

    If you have a decent host and it's just a single user/pass they'd probably set it up for you with no problem. If not, if you Google on the term "htpasswd" you'll probably find some tutorials.

    It gets a lot more complicated when you have multiple users all with different user/pass combinations to access different areas that are unique to the user concerned, and that's well beyond my scope.

    If it were something I was looking to implement myself then I'd first look for an out of the box solution (like this forum). There is a ton of software out there both free and paid. I'm sure something would meet your needs. Best place to start might be here:
    http://www.hotscripts.com/

    If not you could go for a custom script, but then it starts getting expensive.
