Creating a php session script with password required
Posted on 2009-07-14
I have a site on which I want to limit access to the three of the pages to users who have the correct username and password. I would like a php script so that as soon as the user clicks on the navbar button for any one of those pages, he gets a prompt that requires username and password. (In this case they will be the same for all authorized users, no database interaction required).
I would also like the php script to create a session so that the user will not have to re-enter the login when he goes to one of the other protected pages or returns to them.
Let's say that the 3 protected pages are: page2.html, page3.html, and page4.html.
I'll continue researching this online, but please give me as much as you can, up to and including the whole script. I'm really not one of those people looking for you to do my coding. I always learn best when I have a working example in front of me to start with.
