------------------- hn_htusers README ------------------- package hn_htusers.class.php + hn_htusers.manager.php author Horst Nogajski <info at> version 1.0 date 19. October 2009 A PHP-Class to manage Users and Groups in Apache-Webserver-Environments, optional with extra information in a third file. (htuser htgroup htinfo) The package can be retrieved from It comes with the two mainfiles (hn_htusers.class.php + hn_htusers.manager.php) a short_documentation.html and some example files 'hosted' in a Frameset for a quick test and compare of different settings. Also you may see in examples: - how to test your setup, - embedd a dynamic ChangePassword-Form into existing HTML-Code, - use HTTP-Auth with .htaccess files in directories, - use HTTP-Auth without .htaccess files, but with PHP, please read the short_documentation.html, look into the examples, as well as into the commented ClassCode. -------------------- hn_htusers HISTORY -------------------- Jarno Elonen created the original script and basic functions in 2004 Sarah King converted the functions to a class and built in user management routines in 2005 Horst Nogajski - built in group-support and extra infos (both optional) - uses Apache-Style MD5-Cryption Passwords. Now works cross-platform (win,unix)! - built in CSS-Styles for more useability - built in Validation (min-max length, allowed Chars) for all entries - LockingMechanism is more robust. Needed, because now every user may send (lots) requests resulting in writeaccess to the file(s), (password or info) - and some more 'hardening' - all in 2009 -------------------- hn_htusers LICENSE -------------------- Copyright (C) 2004 Jarno Elonen <>, <> Copyright (C) 2005 Sarah King <> Copyright (C) 2009 Horst Nogajski <>, <> Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without modification, are permitted provided that the following conditions are met: - Redistributions of source code must retain the above copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer. - Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution. - The name of the author may not be used to endorse or promote products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
