This code will check for a cookie. If none is found it will verify User ID and Password and then give the user a cookie for next time (or other parts of the site). In addtion
this code will automatically direct the users browser to a page of your choice after authenticating. This code uses MySQL.
I received some e-mail asking what code should be placed on other pages of the website using my Authenticator with Cookies and Redirect. This code should appear before the
HTML Tag on any page you want protected.
Problem: PHP authentication doesn't protect whole directories, HTTP authentication isn't automated (you always have those inflexible txt files) Solution: Using
this script lets you update your .htpasswd file taking usernames and passwords from a MySQL source Just execute this script everytime a password/username combination is newly
entered or changed. It's maybe not the "perfect" way, but the only way I found to protect whole directories with MySQL data.
Simple UNIX SMB authentication. This script allows web site users to be managed by a Windows NT/2000 or SAMBA primary domain controller. *** Please note that this PHP script
will not execute correctly if placed on a Windows web server. *** Requires the installation of Samba (http://samba.sourceforge.net/) to validate usernames/passwords. The
actual Samba server software does not need to run at all. It only uses the small "smbclient" binary installed with Samba. The only other requirement is that a file named
"phpauth" be placed in the SMB logon servers NETLOGON directory (\\SERVERNAME\NETLOGON\). The file must contain only the word 'allow'. This script basically works exactly the
same way as Squid Proxy Cache's SMB authentication does. It has been tested on Mac OS X with Samba 2.2.2 and Windows NT 4 SP 6. If you have any problems, please email me and
I'd be happy to help out. Please note that this PHP script will not execute correctly if placed on a Windows web server.
I've found the need to password protect a few webpages and didn't feel like setting up a "real" authentication scheme. This is pretty cheesy, but good for someone who has a
webpage and wants to make the information only available to a select few.
Easy to use PHP & mySql user tracker .
It combines a cookie with an id with a database to store informations . The cookie will hold an ID and then the vars and everything is read and written to the database .
Perfect for user tracking and login systems . Rate it . I will share more code if appreciated properly .
On the login page: If the user is already logged on or if there are cookies or there is a valid session, he will be redirected to the member page. If the log in form isn't
complete or the username or the password is wrong, the function will return the error variable. In areas for members only: If the user isn't logged on or there aren't any
cookies or the session terminated, the user will be redirected to the login page. In the logout page: The user will be logged out.
