DevShed:
Private Pages with PHP and Text Files
February 27, 2006 @ 09:16:15

DevShed has this new tutorial posted today concerning the use of text file authentication to create "private pages" in your site.

You run a website that is simple enough it doesn't require a database. But your site features certain pages to which you'd like to limit access. Most of the time, that implies using a database to store passwords and usernames. There is an easier way, however. It's less secure, but it involves a lot less coding.

They step you through the process - creating the form, making the PHP page for it to submit to, checking the password (including a bit on encryption), and validating the user's entry against it.
