Can anyone recommend a good user authentication script/class/functions to password protect an area of a site.

should feature:

- users register themselves.
- should confirm email addresses either by sending the password to their email of activating via a link in an email
- sends forgotten passwrods to email
- ability to change password (esp. if auto generated)

Your requirements are all filled by phpBB, even though it's not really meant as an authentification script!

What you would do is set up a phpBB "enabled" page (which loads all phpBB's functions), and then check to see if the user is logged in. If you only want to allow certain users, you'd use something like this:

Code:
if ($userdata['username']=='Username1' || $userdata['username']=='Username2') {
// Do successfull login stuff
}
else {
// Do failed login stuff
}


This is just rough, but let me know if you're interested, and I can develop it more. I'm not sure if this is for Fancy Rats, so I'm not sure if it's appropriate. If it is then it'll make it much easier by only having one database.

Firstly, the reason I asked was for another website that won't be using phpBB, so I'd still be interested in alternatives.

I'm currently looking at this:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/authclassed/
and whilst I have managed to get it working the documentaion and examples are a bit sparse. Its not quite the out of the box solution I was hoping for.

Secondly, I would be interested in using the phpBB login for Fancy Rats so if you feel like developing a tutorial I'd certainly use it Wink if not I'll know where to come to ask questions when I get around to doing it. Very Happy

OK, but what kind of tutorial would you be interested in for phpBB? Having a page which only users registered at the forums can access? Or a page which only certain users registered at the forums can access?

Most useful to me would be to be able to give registered users extra functionality on certain pages.

Take for example my E-Pals page I'd like that to be an extension to the user profile where by registered users could add/edit/remove their details where as a guest would just have be able to read them.

Thats probably more complicated than you were expecting Wink I was going to wait until 2.2 before I bothered to work it out

Well you could just code all the add/edit/remove stuff seperately from phpBB, but using the phpBB functions and database abstraction layer, and then add an if clause (if $userdata['session_logged_in'] or something like that) to only give these options to registered users... You could store the records in a table using $userdata['username'] in the username field.

I can't really write a tutorial on that because it's too specific Sad.

Hi,
I can barely remember which project this was for it was so long ago. I believe in the end it was decided that individual user accounts were not required and that simply sending people a hardcoded password to the email address they specified was sufficient. It was more about collecting contact details of interested people than anything else.
Sorry thats not going to be of any help to you.
