Technetguru: PassMasterFlex

Thank you for downloading PassMasterFlex.

This is a simple single-user login that utilizes cookies for authentication. PassMasterFlex was written to provide an alternative to the Apache login, since the only successful way to "log out" with Apache is to close the browser window.


  • Cookies Based
  • When user logs out, cookie is removed from user PC
  • Utilizes md5 encryption for password
  • Logout window


  • Platform independent (However, only tested on Linux, AIX, and Win XP)
  • Cookied enabled-borwser
  • PHP - (register_globals: on)


  1. Open config.php and change noted variables.
  2. Open index.php, look <!-- BEGIN YOUR TEXT HERE --> and the <!-- END YOUR TEXT HERE --> tags, add your HTML between these. Do not make copies of this file for additional pages, it contains the main login; copy page2.php instead.
  3. Open page2.php, repeat process mentioned in Step 2. Make as many copies of this page, just rename (duh), link, and keep code above and below <!-- BEGIN YOUR TEXT HERE --> intact.
  4. Upload contents of PassMasterFlex to your web server.
  5. That's it!
