16. Protecting access to the site: passwords
Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
Protecting the access to a site using passwords is necessary in two cases:
  1. Protecting personal information.
  2. Restricting the access to a site.
Protecting personal information
Users can specify a password to access personal information. In a business site, a password can be defined to access the details of previous orders.
In this case, accessing a site requires:
  • an authentication:
    When users log in for the first time, they must enter their username and password.
    Next time they log in, they will be able to access specific information (history, etc.).
  • an option to let users recover their passwords.
WEBDEV is provided with all the resources required to manage personal passwords.
Restricting the access to a site
By default, a website is accessible to any user. But a site is not always intended for the general public: some features can be reserved to some types of users (site administrator, etc.).
In this case, the site manager assigns a password to each user. This password cannot be modified. This password gives access to specific features.
For example, in a business site:
  • a specific password will be assigned to salespeople: they will be able to access sales statistics, etc.
  • a specific password will be assigned to the members of the marketing team: they will be able to publish new products.
WEBDEV allows you to easily manage these different types of access to a site.
