purchase access to directory via Zen Cart - repost

In Progress

I have had Zen Cart ([url removed, login to view]) installed and functioning on my website for some time now. I understand how to use Zen Cart's feature to make certain files downloadable when purchased by registered users. However, I would like for my Zen Cart's registered users to be able to purchase access to a whole directory on my website (accessible via that specific user's login and password info), which is something Zen Cart is not set up to do.

- The registered Zen Cart user purchases access to a particular directory.

- The registered Zen Cart user goes to that directory, say, "/gen", on my website.

- The registered Zen Cart user is prompted for their Zen Cart login and password.

- The registered Zen Cart user gives his/her Zen Cart login and password, and if they have in fact paid for access to that dir, is able to access pages in the directory; if they have not paid for access, it will send them to an error page with an explanation that access must be purchased.

(Eventually I can imagine wanting to make multiple directories separately purchasable.)

I don't know if this is directly doable using Zen Cart's MySQL username/password info and altered htaccess permissions or would require something more complicated. When you respond with a bid, please state how you personally would go about making this work. I would like to make it as straightforward and reliable as possible.
