    Username/Password database......

    Just wondering if someone could point me in the right direction...I'm getting ready to put a site up and was curious on how to go about allowing users to create a small profile and choosing a username/password for the site that would go into a database. How exactly would one do that? Not sure what proggie I'm gonna use to design it yet, any suggestion for the best program to use for this kind of "Log In" site would be appreciated, Thanx.

    It all depends on the database management system your gonna use, i have used oracle and i find that the best way is to set a table called users or similar that holds there info and then use php to send SQL queries to it containing inserts for new members, updates for changing password and selects for logging in.

    The thing you go to make sure is the security side. Make sure that you put thoruough checks on any input fields to avoid things like SQL Injection, and make sure that the admin account that you use for the SQL statements to go through only has the priveledges it needs. I'm sure there's lots more but i'm still very new to it myself.

    Of course if you don't plan to use PHP then i'm sure google will help, if you do plan to use PHP and SQL i can send you some example scripts that i have used. Also take a look at http://www.php.net imho it's the definitive guide to PHP.

    hope this helps

    If you're looking for a quick script that you can easily install and run on your site, I would try a site such as http://www.hotscripts.com and depending on the database management you choose will determine the language...vice versa.
