Login without cookies


does anyone know how to create a login system with PHP that does not use
cookies? I am finding that more and more users seem to be setting their
privacy settings to high, this not accepting cookies.

Another option is to use sessions and transmit the session ID in the URL.
As for privacy, that's obviously worse than those innocent cookies but
paranoid uses don't normally have much technical knowledge ;-)

One way is to assign the user a session ID and pass it between
scripts via POST/GET. If a script does not get a valid session
ID, it must redirect the client to the login page.

Another way is to use HTTP authentication, i.e., sending out
an "Authentica te:" HTTP header.

If you keep the login details in a server-side session then you don't need
to keep any data in a cookie. By default PHP will create a session-temporary
cookie (which exists only in memory, and which gets deleted when the browser
session closes) which contains nothing but "PHPSESSID=<ses sionid>", so
unless the user has session-temporary cookies turned off then this will be
used. Alternatively PHP will append the string "PHPSESSID=<ses sionid>" to
every URL, but transmitting the sessionid in plain text like this opens up a
security problem.

Hi, I have a Login.php page that logs the user in and out. I has two forms within the page, (depending on what we are trying to do), either one to log in or out. The form calls itself using a post method and either logs the user in our out given the information from the form. but every pages use sessions and cookies, if the user is successfully logged in then the cookies and session values are updated, (as well as MySQL).
