That could work in some instances, but I think there are other
organisations that would like to use Xerte that would not have this
facility, I am thinking more of commercial training companies here.
Xerte seems to be geared more towards schools / Universities, and
rightly so, but it would also be of great value to small training

Hello All,


Are there any alternatives to LDAP authentication?

Is it possible to have for example email registration, or just create a
database of user accounts?

If this feature does not yet exsit, where which files would I need to

For example, if I wanted to write a new auth method, where would I
change the function / method call?


Thanks Jeremy
