I have a question regarding include files. I'm currently wanting to secure
all of the pages within a directory by having a login script that queries a
MySQL DB, and writes a session variable confirming the user is successfully
Now, I've done this many times before, however I'm getting kind of sick of
putting the include file to check the session variable on EVERY page within
a directory. This is especially irritating if I for whatever reason want to
unsecure a directory, or change the structure of the login system - it
forces me to go into each file of the admin area and remove the call to the
My question is: Is there a way to have PHP force an include file per
directory instead of just file? Maybe have a global file inside the
directory that will cascade the include to every page below? Or am I simply
forced to manually include the file on each page?
Thank you in advance.

Have you tried using the httpd.conf to set the auto_prepend_file directive
for specific directories? You can put it in the <directory> section, so you
can set different directories to prepend your login script. That would take
it out of your code and put it in apache...
