    I dont think you can because you need the database of users and their passwords, however it might be possible to manually code each user and not use a database, but if it were possible and you expect multiple users then i wouldnt go for that approach.

    I successfully created a client login for use without a MySQL table, if you want to see my code, e-mail or pm me.

    You can use many different methods... hardcoding them into the script, using a flat file (.txt or whatever extension you want). Basically any method for which PHP can retrieve information, you can use to make a log in script. MySQL is generally the safest since (on a well setup server) you can only connect through localhost... meaning no outside server can even get to the database, let alone break your password and password encryption in the database itself.
