PHP-SecureArea is a PHP membership script which allows authorized members to access a secure area of a web site after the purchase of a PayPal recurring subscription.
Subscribed members are automatically allocated to the membership areas after payment has been confirmed or manually added through the admin displays.
PHP-SecureArea provides the checking of the completed transaction, administration of subscriptions, and the sending of confirmation email and password to the customers.
The subscription areas have parameters that include :
- the folder path of the protected area
- the cost to access the protected area
- the billing cycle for the subscription which may be from 1 day to many years.
When the user makes a valid purchase, they are able to log in to the membership area for the subscription period and continue to do so as long as the customer continues to pay the subscription. Access to the membership area will end when the customer cancels the subscription or when payment fails. For manual created users, access to the membership area is controlled by a Cron job.
Subscription installments are also supported allowing a fixed number of payments to be made for a defined period.
The application does not have to be used with PayPal, as users can be manually created through the admin interface.
You can manually create subscribed users, in which case a Cron job is used to disable users at the required time.
You can create as many membership areas as you like, with each area pointing to different folders or some pointing to the same folders but with differing costs and time limits. So you could have a subscription costing $10.00 for 6 months access and another subscription costing $15.00 for 12 months access giving the customer a choice.
