I'm looking for an extremely basic username and password system (non-database driven) to be able to access a specific web page. It's got to have only one pre-defined username and maybe three different password possibilities. Does anything like this exist on this site or anywhere else (have looked, but can't find).

TIA

I believe that having 3 passwords may consitute you needing a database, if you can stick with one you could easily use the htaccess function that most hosting companies provide. It allows you to secure a folder(s) on your site and use HTTP authentication to let a user view it or not. If you have any doubts go to the control panel of your hosting company account and see if you spot htaccess or secure folder or something like that.

I could probably get away with having only 1 password... the idea of securing a folder is good. Thanks.
