web page security and accessing it after logon script through mysql
Posted on 2004-10-26
With all due respect to all experts here !
I would like to resolve this confusion here.
Basically I am working on to put a logon box on web page like user name and password.
I read few free scripts on internet and most of the time ( as I understand ) it looks like after getting authentication from sql or mysql server the user directs to some page, which is either residing on some other location or simply not listed ( as under any link) on main page or deep down.
My confusion is.... lets say after logon ( as valid user ) if I am passing on the link to other people or even if I am bookmark it, then whats the point of logging on ? because after bookmarking it I don't need next time to log on. What I am after is, to provide a page only to those users who are loged in each time (required) to see that particular page otherwise redirected to bad logon or vice versa.
I will be very greatfull for that and thanks in advance for all those experts who are not laughing at me here.
