User/Password storage query
I've been asked to quickly set up a password protected page on a client's server and I don't have access to a database on this occasion. There is only one username/password combination and this will be used by multiple persons. Not ideal. Anyway, I'm just thinking about storing the username and SHA1 encrypted password in a separate php file from the login script then doing my usual authentication. Is there a more secure way to store the user/password info or does this seem reasonable?
