If I'm not mistaken, a lot of that can be accomplished by proper configuration of an .htaccess file if you are using Apache. However, WebDev has never been my strongest point. Regardless of whether you are running a script locally or as cgi on a web server, graff's point about file locking is very important. Any access to shared resources need to be controlled properly or you will have issues.
