Google up a user management system, basically if you want to do it yourself you need a database with a user table in it, a username and a password which is encrypted using md encryption, your password field and username login section would be a form and upon successful execution will create sessions.
Programming this would not be too hard. It would just take some time and a fair amount of php knowledge. Some kind of database would be required, even if its just a formatted text file like I used to use when MySql databases were available on some free hosts.
explode(); used to be my buddy back in the day when I just used text files as databases.
It all depends on your amount of knowledge. I'd reccomend going with some prewritten code if you are not comfortable coding.
Mod a phpBB installation and make a members area... You'd kill two birds with one stone (a discussion forum, and a members area).
what filess would be moded?
phpBBs code confuses me or I just dont know the "=>" notation yet...
how would I go about doing that? Specifically, contribute the code to if you may =[
search hotscripts i think user authentication is the proper named used. A simple one can do it, but if you want one that can ban ips and tells you which ip looged on and other functions you might want to get something more complex.
ahhh, that looks good ^_^
I think ill use that for session handling on my part... At least I think it
would beable to work like that..
