Comment: Existing example did not work with MD5 passwords.


  • roles is a a table containing one role for every role in the system:
    • id is the unique identifier of a role
    • role is a human-readable name for a role

If you want to use obfuscated, MD5 hashed or encrypted passwords the 'pwd' column of the 'users' table must be large enough to hold obfuscated, hashed or encrypted password plus the appropriate prefix.

The pseudo-sql to set up each of these tables would look like:

Code Block
  id integer primary key,
  username varchar(100) not null unique key,
  pwd varchar(2050) not null
Code Block
  user_id integer not null,
  role_id integer not null,
  unique key (user_id, role_id),
