Suggestions needed - one log-in for multiple scripts


I am building a client area for my customers. It will consist of various scripts, some open source (like Collabtive Project Management) as well as ‘paid for’ scripts. I would really like to keep this as simple as possible, so that once logged into the admin area there is no need to have separate log-ins for each script.

Can anyone recommend a safe way of doing this?

It depends entirely on the script itself.

Some scripts give the option of integrating with other systems by sharing login tables and session values, but that’s quite rare. It will most likely involve you doing a lot of reprogramming.

There have been times when I’ve used such softwares in an attempt to make them collaborate, however it really wasn’t worth it. With the amount of research and work involved, it can be faster to write it all yourself.
