actually, SSL (aka https) has little, if anything, to do with user authentication -- it's used mainly for data encryption. If you're looking for user authentication, then you can either use your web server's built-in user authentication (Apache uses mod_auth, I think) and IIS it's NTFS file permissions or you can roll your own PHP-based user authentication. I recommend the former, since it's likely to be more robust and scalable than anything you can put together yourself (no slight towards you -- it's just that hundreds of people work on and test Apache and IIS authentication schemes) <insert favorite IIS joke here> If you choose the latter, check out www.hotscripts.com as there's a ton of PHP-based user authentication systems there. hth --kurt -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] For additional commands, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] To contact the list administrators, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
