If you use a Linux system I did a module to support PAM for HTTP
Authentication on nginx, it is available on:

It works with the stable nginx version and needs small changes for the 0.7.x
series (I plan to upgrade the code once 0.7.x is declared stable).

With that module you can use any authentication system supported by PAM, in
your case I would use pam-mysql ( to
authenticate against a MySQL database.

Hope it helps,
