Hi all,

I am thinking of a login system which can retrieve user credentials from:
i) DB
ii) LDAP
iii) XML

essentially a configurable one..
Like when u choose to get credentials from DB, u can specify the table name and columns to get the value from...
similarly for others..
i.e main theme is that nothing should be hard coded..
any suggestion from u guys?

Is PEAR:Auth not an option ?

Think XML is the only one not supported yet by default.

well, i dont know anything about it... I will have a look and let u know..
Do u recommend it?? i mean is it reliable??

I have only used it to connect to DB, but I've never had much problems with the PEAR packages. So yes, I think it's reliable.

In that case... PEAR it is... ;) thnku pritaeas !!!

Currently PEAR supports the following list of licenses:
- PHP License
- Apache License
- LGPL
- BSD style
- MIT License

Fine then i will give it a go...
