problem having one PHP page with a login form act as a gatekeeper to a second PHP page

Hello,

I have a page that should only be accessed when a client enters a password. Can I do that in a single page?

Right now I am using a page with a single login field in a form, with the form Action set to the page that should be password protected (REMOTE). I then created a rule for the page to be protected REMOTE.PHP that restricts access (see image attached).

How can I make this work?

thank you.

I think that should work, but you would only see the page once and any functionality on the page would not work. You may want to set a session variable based on the form post value and then set the rule to check the session variable.

Whichever way, instead of "Validated Field" you should be comparing it to the form field directly. The validated field will only have a value when it fails the server validation.
