Q. I have a "webfarm", of 15 web server machines. I want to have a single location in which to manage my users and groups. How can I protect directories on each machine from a single location?
A. With ODBC, you can manage access to multiple webservers in a web-farm from a single database. Set up each AuthentiX directory you want to protect on each webserver, protect by ODBC and set the DSN to the single remote ODBC server. You can use the "Standard Select", "Custom Select" or "Advanced ODBC" to configure your ODBC SELECT statements.

When you update the directory protections (adding a new directory), then make the changes in both .adb files on both machines. If you make a lot of complex changes, then you can copy the adb file from one machine to another, as here.
