Add authentication to any php page the easy way

This is useful for anyone who’d like to add a login form to any php page.

Simply, save the following code as access.php, and insert the following snippet on the first line of any php file you want protected.

< ?php include “access.php”; ?> (remove the space before the question mark)

Voila! as easy as 1,2,3. The crentials can be edited in the access.php file, by changing the values of $ADMIN_USER and $ADMIN_PASSWORD.

This useful script requires no database, and no big tweaking to the code on your pages.

    This looks nice, thanks; I’ll try it.
    The form is perhaps too soon because I haven’t loaded or used the system yet…but I’ll save it and comment later.
    If you get few people filling out the form it’s ok they probably lost the source of the script.
