Login with mysql database info.

I have a website that runs xenforo forum software. I basically have a donations user group and those users have the ability to download some software. I want to add a login form to my application that checks if that user is in that group and if he / she is then it will open the main form. I want to know how I can make such a login form?

You can check the users group by installing MySQL Workbench that will allow you to log in it. Then when you first log in it will bring up "MySQL Connections page" which you will put in your information. Then click the test connection at the bottom before hitting okay. After that you will be able to see your database and user rights.
