Over the time I have spent on this forum I have read that many people have developed their own CMS for their clients.
I am by no means a developer but I think I can stick together a nice simple CMS that would fulfill the needs of the small businesses I tend to work for.
My only concern – and this is directly related to my coding skills [or lack of] – is security. What did you guys do to ensure that your CMS is safe from the bad guys? The information I deal with isn’t really of a sensitive nature, no cards and addresses, but I would hate to let my clients down.
I was just planning to stick the users password in a database and have the PHP log on screen to check against it.
Is this horribly unsafe?
