README

Database-user Auth driver, used to authenticate as a user of the DBMS (rather than a user whose credentials are stored in the database).

Usage

To use, simply:

  • set 'driver' => 'db' in the APPPATH/config/auth.php config file,
  • do not set the username or password in theAPPPATH/config/database.php config file,
  • and make sure a valid database name is given in that latter file.

For example, a minimal APPPATH/config/auth.php looks like this:

<?php
return array(
	'driver' => 'DB'
);

...and a minimal APPPATH/config/database.php could be this:

<?php
return array (
	'default' => array (
		'connection' => array(
			'hostname'   => 'db.example.net', // But usually 'localhost'
			'database'   => 'db_name_here',
		 ),
	),
);

(Of course, if your host and database names match the defaults as given in MODPATH/database/config/database.php then you don't need your own Database config file at all.)
