Is there an easy way to do user authentication without using PHPLib? I hate to re-invent the wheel, but in this case, I need to.
If you're running PHP as an Apache module, you can integrate with HTTP authentication.
Just curious - why can't you use PHPLIB?

The reason we do not want to use PHPLib is because it just doesn't do things quite the way we want them to. We really want to track authentication and session vars across pages, but not the way it does it.

Well, to answer my own query, I did it without PHPlib, but with some source help from PHPlib.
The main thing I was worried about was clear-text passwords, and with the MD5 algorithm from PHPlib, I was able to get rid of this problem.
Now with PHP4, I am able to do sessions properly without rolling my own!
