Your code works! (but user have connection to WAN, (after expirationtime), too..... :(
Thanks for help Carsten Holbach!

Letter from Carsten Holbach:
I have had the same idea a few weeks ago.
Maybe you could search the archives for "Captive portal - time based 
access", maybe my code helps you.

Subject: Captive Portal: expiration date and time


I make some changes in Captive Portal, 
I want "expirationdate" swap by "expiration date and time" ..... 

I change index.php (in /usr/local/captiveportal/)

It is part of MY index.php:

 //erase expired accounts
 if (is_array($userdb)) {
  $moddb = false;
  for ($i = 0; $i < count($userdb); $i++) {
   if ($userdb[$i]['expirationdate'] && (strtotime("-1 min") >
strtotime($userdb[$i]['expirationdate']))) {    

// my changes is: -1 min it was: -1 day

    $moddb = true;
  if ($moddb)

It is part of MY services_captiveportal_users_edit.php:

 if ($_POST['expirationdate']){
  if(strtotime($_POST['expirationdate']) > 0){
  if (strtotime("-1 day") > strtotime(date("m/d/Y H:i",strtotime($_POST['expirationdate'])))){  

  // my changes is: "m/d/Y H:i" it was: "m/d/Y"

    $input_errors[] = "The expiration date lies in the past.";   
   } else {
    //convert from any strtotime compatible date to MM/DD/YYYY
    $expdate = strtotime($_POST['expirationdate']);
    $_POST['expirationdate'] = date("m/d/Y H:i",$expdate);
  } else {
   $input_errors[] = "Invalid expiration date format; use MM/DD/YYYY instead.";

AND it is part of MY services_captiveportal_users.php:

//erase expired accounts
$changed = false;
for ($i = 0; $i < count($a_user); $i++) {
 if ($a_user[$i]['expirationdate'] && (strtotime("-1 min") >
strtotime($a_user[$i]['expirationdate']))) {

// my changes is: -1 min it was: -1 day


but it works only if I reflesh in webGUI : USERS (CAPTIVE PORTAL)  Why ?

Thanks for all reply ;)
