My goal is to store into a database table the username/password for a
Then, to have a htaccess like popup show when someone will reach that

Right now I can do it easy with a htpasswd file, in nginx.
But I think it is much more convenient to have a web interface where you can
manage the users, etc.
Let me know if there is a similar solution I could use, with all user info
stored into a MySQL database instead of a file.
