    I've been reading Kyank's excellent PHP/Mysql article and I'm a little confused when it comes to user privileges over the web.

    I'm working on a content management system that will allow a couple people to update the site (via webforms - (no telnetting). Since the scripts runs on my host's servers the username will always be fixed and the host will always be "localhost".

    Am I correct in assuming mysql privileges are not used in this situation?

    My only guess is that I would have to create my own user/password system with PHP sessions/cookies and restrict access to the php scripts (instead of restricting access to explicit mysql commands)?

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Exactly. You would have to implement your customized user database.
