comparing users password to one stored in a database
I am [trying] to write a script that will allow employees to clock in and out for work, and calculate the work hours for the week. I plan to use a pipe-delimited text file for the database. In the database, I plan to have fields such as username, password, timein, timeout, totaltime, etc.
What I am looking for help on is how to compare and match user input to input already in the database, specifially for login purposes. In other words, I would like to have all users and passwords in the database so that a user can pull up the script/page and type in their username/password and upon clicking submit the script would search the database file, match the username, then compare the passwords (one entered vs one in database) if they match -return page A, if they dont return page B.
Any suggestions/help/references are greatly appreciated!!!
