    secure user authentication without any DBs

    Subject speaks for itself. I'm wondering how I can have some secure authentication system without the use of any databases. Does it all come down to CHMOD?

    well depending on several factors you could create a flat file that contains a username & a password.
    Then read the file in and compare the username/password entered at the site login page.
    this isn't the best method, but it would work.

    If you're on Apache, look up htpassword access on Google.
