Tony Broadbent: "Such a great product! I have been struggling to hand craft pages which, with your PHP Generator, I created beautifully within 5 minutes of downloading it".
Grey: "We're a two-person company, it's just me an my wife. I'm the technical guru, and she handles the business operations. I have to know a lot about MySQL, but that's much too technical for her. I have frequently had to setup CGI scripts (I code in Perl) so she can manage some of our tables (suppliers, manufacturers, etc).

I discovered PHP Generator a couple of days ago, tried the free version,and within a few hours I had purchased the Pro version (as well as SQL Maestro for MySQL).

Today I am completing the conversion of the last of my custom table managers to PHP Generator. This is eliminating several thousand lines of code that I don't have to support any more!

Thanks for this fantastic product".

User-defined authorization

This kind of authorization allows you to define your own custom authentication. This feature requires you to define a function that takes entered username and password and returns true or false depending on their validity. This means you can use any possible storage for user credentials and any encryption algorithm you like.




To check that the password is equal to the user name and password contains 5 or more symbols, place the following code to the body of the CheckUserIdentity function. This condition means that the 'John/John' or 'John/Michael' pair will be declined while the 'Michael/Michael' or 'Gloria/Gloria' login/password combination will be accepted.


if ($username == $password)

  $result = strlen($password) >= 5;


  $result = false;
