Website Login System and User Manager

Lock it down.  Secure your website's content — even offer paid subscriptions — or give each of your users a private page.  UserBase makes it easy.
I just installed the demo of your product and got it up and running in no time. I searched high and low for a decent login script and thank God I found yours.

UserBase is a login system, user account manager, and password-protector for your website.  It provides user authentication as a simple drop-in web app.  UserBase is easy to install if you're a bit tech-savvy, or we can install it for you today.  It will run on pretty much any website/server, because it requires only Perl and MySQL, which are present on virtually all servers.


  • Simple installation, and easy integration into your website's existing layout (or, we can install it for you)
  • Create unlimited user accounts and unlimited groups
  • Can password-protect your entire website, or just the specific pages/folders that you choose
  • Supports optional paid accounts with simple PayPal-based configuration and multiple payment levels
  • Full control over account creation: administrators can add/delete accounts; public sign-up can be enabled; public sign-ups can be set to require admin approval and/or email verification before becoming active
  • User registration / signup page is customizable with unlimited form fields, to collect whatever user information is appropriate for your site
  • Users can change their own passwords, and reset them via email if forgotten, without the need for the webmaster's intervention
  • Login sessions can be restricted to user's current IP address for increased security
  • Can automatically lock accounts after a number of failed logins
  • Can automatically timeout an idle session after a period of inactivity
  • Can be configured to prevent or allow multiple simultaneous logins by the same username
  • Can sleep for a specified number of seconds on failed logins for protection against brute-force attacks
  • Salts passwords and never stores any plaintext passwords; only stores salted encrypted versions
  • Customizable landing page so when a user logs in, he immediately see links to the member-only and/or admin-only resources that you specify
  • Optional automatic redirection to pages you specify after login/logout
  • Supports both HTTP and HTTPS, for sites that have SSL encryption certificates
  • Works on virtually all servers (Apache, IIS, Windows, Linux, and OS X Server) and browsers (Chrome, Mozilla/Firefox, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer)
  • Check out the FAQ and the userbase_prefs.cgi file in the trial version to see more of the available features
  • Many more features, and if you don't see what you need, just ask – we can probably add it.


Here are a few screenshots of some of UserBase's admin-only pages:

To see the member-facing pages (sign-up, login, etc), check out the Live Demo.


You can download the UserBase trial version and install it on your site right now; it includes instructions.  The trial is designed for you to test on your server before purchasing the full version.  As such, it has limitations and disabled features, including 4-character length limits on usernames and passwords, no "remember me" login option, no password reset feature, and more.

Nice script, it's saving the day on our project.
– Aaron W.
I want to thank you for your efforts on Userbase. It has become an integral part of our business and has allowed us to branch out and begin using automation on a lot of our processes. Userbase has become the gateway to advancement for our company's processes for our clients and employees.
The work, the thought and the organization you put into this app is incredible.
– Bruce C.
You've done a wonderful job with FileChucker and UserBase, and they have made a big difference to how our website runs.
– Nicholas H.
I looked all over trying to find a simple cgi script.  I found that FileChucker was by far the best.  If you have issues with your hosting service's php.ini max upload size then this is the way to go.  Looking forward to future enhancements.
– Bob C.
Thanks again for a great product and great support - beyond expectations.
– Greg S.
I just wanted to say that yours is the first product that I've tested so far that hasn't failed on handling uploads.  This is going to work for a print company, so they are handling nothing but large files and all the other solutions I've tried so far have not been reliable.  So far yours has been 100% successful in my tests.
– Kevin H.
I just want to say you guys really stand alone in that you have a quality product and you provide genuine customer service.  It's sad but those qualities are seldom found separately, much less together.  Thanks again for your time and help.

FileChucker is a great drop-in solution for file uploads, and worth every penny of its very reasonable cost.  Encodable's support is excellent to boot.
– Loren A.
Just one word: Fantastic.  10-minute job to plug FileChucker into my app, and it now works a treat.  It's through the hard work by people like yourselves that make my job so much easier.  Congratulations on an outstanding product... Many many thanks.

Do you know how rare it is to have a "canned" shopping cart that can easily do complex pricing options on a single item?  Basically, they don't exist!  I have looked.  Everywhere!  And the few that might even come close to CornerStore's functionality cost a fortune!
– Tashina P.
Why didn't I just do this from the get-go?  So much easier.  Thanks for your work.  FileChucker makes my work easier.
– Dominic M.
The amount of customization in the program is incredible.  I was able to integrate it into my existing page layout relatively simply.  I was also able to easily customize the look/feel to match the current site.
– Jason M.
Thank you VERY much for all of your help.  You've really impressed me.  We have support agreements for other software that costs thousands of dollars / year (just for the support), and most of them aren't as helpful as you have been.
– Keith Y.
FileChucker is helping drive the backend of several high profile entertainment sites for people like Shania Twain and Dolly Parton.  We're also using it to drive backend file uploads for a multi-billion dollar banking institution.  It's a great product.  We've tried other "chucking" upload solutions with progress bars using flash and php, but nothing works as reliably as FileChucker.
– Michael W.
Our members think your software is fantastic...  I would recommend your software and your company to anyone.  Thanks for all your help.  It has been a pleasure dealing with you.
