external user/group SQL authentication
« on: March 08, 2004, 12:59:17 pm »

I'm running coppermine on a system having already users and groups on a SQL database, which authenticate access to a FTP service (but could be whatever other sql based authentication service).
I was just wondering how easy would be to create a "flexible" user authentication. I'll better explain

Why don't create a couple of config file lines where to specify
- the IPport socket of the database server
- the database name where I've got the users/groups
- the column name for the users
- the column name for the password (with the option for clean or encrypted password)
- the column name for the groups.

In this way I could use existing user/group accounts to automatically interact with coppermine.

Thanks a lot

that's more or less the way the bridge files work. Just have a look into one of them and modify it to your needs.
