My wish is to have an easy to maintain system. If paths and logins can 
be stored in SQL this could be perfect.
I just don't know how to do this.

I just want to be sure we're talking about authorisations and not 
authentication. I know how to use SQL, LDAP or whatever to create 
authentications mechanisms.
What I'm searching is path based authorisations to allow acces to 
xxx/yyy folder to bob, while other authenticated users can't access to 
it (though it can be more complex).
