craete a table in a data base call it user_data then wat you want to do is
create an html form say that it has two fields a username and a password
then wat you want to do is with that form post that data into the fields of your table which should be username and password

the fields of your table which should be username and password
it is generally recommended to use the password hash instead of the plain password.

using sha265 or ripemd is more secure than md5.

Going to sound strange, but here i go. We use Windows 2000 AD for everything. However, we are also running XAMPP (basically Apache, MySQL, PHP for windows) on a Windows box for our Intranet.

If I type ldap://domaincontroller it fails, so of course, when I try to use...

DB2 UDB 7.2 WSE Fixpak 9 Linux Red Hat 7.3 A very strange thing just happened w/ my DB2 server. I am on Linux and using NIS - the instance owner is in the servers /etc/passwd file. Suddenly, DB2 would not authenticate any NIS-based logins, but it *would* authenticate the local non-NIS instance owner. This was happening not only w/ local connections on the server, but also

I am starting a rewrite of an existing Classic ASP web site in ASP.NET 2.0. The existing ASP application has several types of users, each with a separate login process (separate login page, separate DB tables, etc). For one of these user types, the current application has an additional input field required for login… they have a username, password, and another “location code” field. Please don’t make me explain or justify this…...

I would think this would be very, very easy but in the 50 searches I've done I haven't found anything. If our application requires login and that user/password be a local windows account or more detailed, a user that has been added to the Power Users group that is either a local account or a active directory account how do I authenticate? I've found code that seems to do this against Active Directory

I am modifying an app for a customer in ASP.Net 1.1. The app is running on a server outside their network, yet they want to authenticate users against their internal active directory set up (they will open the necessary ports). So, I have a simple login page with username and password, and then I will authenticate that credentials entered against their AD server. I am having a real hard time figuring this out. We can't use Windows Forms...

I had a question about the use of the HTTP header 'WWW-Authenticate' in PHP scripts. For example, the script below sends the header 'WWW- Authenticate: Basic Realm="Secret Stash"', followed by the header 'HTTP/1.0 401 unauthorized', to force the web browser to display a username/password dialog. The script then calls exit(). I don't understand how the script gets re-invoked (after the username and password have been supplied in the...
