I have a guest user SSID set up on a  2504  Cisco WLC which I would like to configure to use the local on board database   username and password instead of psk shared key . Do any body  know who to set this up  ?

so a user clicks on the SSID from  a mobile device  he is presented with  a username  and password. I do not have a radius server. I want to use the local database created on the WLC

As much as I can see that is what you need (maybe I am wrong) :)
SSID from  a mobile device  he is presented with  a username  and password
That is as much as I know Web authentication :)
You need to create Web authentication (clients are authorized based from local username and password database on WLC) - no need to use Tacacs or Radius
Managing User Accounts

This chapter describes how to create and manage guest user accounts, how the web authentication process works, and how to customize the web authentication login page. It contains these sections:

    Creating Guest User Accounts
    Obtaining a Web Authentication Certificate
    Web Authentication Process
    Choosing the Web Authentication Login Page
    Configuring Wired Guest Access

Creating Guest User Accounts

The controller can provide guest user access on WLANs. The first step in creating guest user accounts is to create a lobby administrator account, also known as a lobby ambassador account. Once this account has been created, a lobby ambassador can create and manage guest user accounts on the controller. The lobby ambassador has limited configuration privileges and access only to the web pages used to manage the guest accounts.

The lobby ambassador can specify the amount of time that the guest user accounts remain active. After the specified time elapses, the guest user accounts expire automatically.

The local user database is limited to a maximum of 2048 entries, which is also the default value (on the Security > AAA > General page). This database is shared by local management users (including lobby ambassadors), local network users (including guest users), MAC filter entries, exclusion list entries, and access point authorization list entries. Together they cannot exceed the configured maximum value.

I'm sorry, it is simple web page, but it is a web page.
And, it is connected to local database.

No you didn't misunderstand... I was just saying someone else has asked the same question which was answered previously.  Glad you got sorted either way.
