activate page WITHOUT database

activate page WITHOUT database

I have a page I want to protect where the user name and password will always be the same, therefore it doesn't need to be stored in a db. The client will call the company to get these credentials. Try as I may I can't figure out how to do this. I have added access rules in the past but they always concerned a DB. Can you lend some direction?

security assist cannot be used without a database.


you would need to hand this in order to accomplish gaining access without using a database.

it would require storing the login page values in session variables then writing an if statement on the protected page to restrict access if those session aren't equal to the user name and password yo want to allow access for.

Add user group maybe?

I was afraid you were going to say that, and certainly I can do it but my clients always want to go the cheap route and that's why I love my web assist products.

What then would be the best way to use WA to handle this, WITH a database and without creating ANOTHER database to handle the situation? Add user group id and only show page to that group maybe? Would need assistance on understanding making custom access rules. I have done it before but the interface was confusing for me. Your expert help is always appreciated, and you are one of the best, thanks in advance!

you would only need to create a new table in your existing database to define the one user.

singleUser:
userID - primary key
userName
userPass

any other columns you may need.

then use the security assist wizard to the create the login pages for the singleUser table.

you can use the registration page to insert the one user, then delete it if you like. for the protected page, use the logged into singleUser access rule.
