I can parse the file just fine, what I am trying to do is actually make use of the data coming out of the passwd file. In other words if you set up a simple table: UserID Username Password And then populate the table using a PHP script that parses the /etc/passwd file and then write your app to verify the user on that data can it be done? Username is no problem, the Unix encrypted password is the one I am trying to work out. If the user has a password of: phprocks and in /etc/passwd that encrypted password works out to be: !#@KJCKMSD@, then I validate the user, they enter the correct username and password, will PHP be able to validate that the password they entered matches the encrypted password.
