GUIDE: ezAuth with codeIgniter 2.1.0


ezAuth  is a very handy library for user authentication/authorization. However it has not been updated lately to be compatible with the latest changes in CodeIgniter 2.1.0

I assume that you’ve successfully added it to your CodeIgniter project. For me all I did is that I copied ezauth_model.php to the models folder  and loaded the model in my controllers.

In this new guide, I will list all the changes that you need to do to get it working with you from the first shoot! The following changes need to be done on the ezauth_model.php

  1. change:
    class EzAuth_Model extends Model
    to
    class EzAuth_Model extends CI_Model
  2. Update the constructor name to become
    function __construct() {
    Instead of the class name
  3. Add the following line toward the end of your constructor
    parent::__construct();
  4. Make sure that the cookie helper is loaded in your autoload.php file or add it to the constructor
    $this->load->helper('cookie');
  5. Replace the db function “getwhere” with “get_where”

You’re done! good luck
