Hello everyone!

We have been investing plenty of personal time and energy for many years to share our knowledge with you all. However, we now need your help to keep this blog running. All you have to do is just click one of the adverts on the site, otherwise it will sadly be taken down due to hosting etc. costs. Thank you.

Basic authentication works with "symfony2" session which is defined in behat.yml file. For more info, click here. Example below uses in_memory style symfony security.yml file so login box pops up on the screen for user to login.
