Postby uday123 » Sat Mar 25, 2006 2:50 am

Hi Friends,

I am new to PHP technology.I need a small requirement in PHP.
I am building a tool which needs login page.I don't want to use any database.But the password security should be high.I want to use encryption algorithms(md5,hash etc.). So please help me for making the script as per my requirements.

Please send me the scripts if u people already build it.

If you don't want to use a database, the password will have to be stored somewhere else, eg a PHP script. However, that immediately makes the script less secure.

Your best bet is to secure the entire folder using .htaccess files (for apache) or IISPassword (IIS).

Why you do not want to use database. You can use file then, but it will be possible to read file
even if you encripted password. For example 5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99 is encripted word "passsword". Use database. it is better.

You can download complete php application with security implemented.

go to and download file

Using some DB is the best option no doubt.
Like coditor said, if you're about to use Apache for that it can be also easy as you can put all user names/pass line by line in the .htpasswd.
You can also create a simple PHP script to handle that (insert/edit/remove).
