    Web Page Log in function

    Hey guys,

    It's been too long. A story for another day is what's been happening since we last spoke...

    So in january I left my job, and am back at TAFE (college) studying screen and media... I am also starting out on my own as a freelance video editor/cameraman/web developer/ multimedia dude.

    Now I have a client which is a long-time friend of my dad's, so I'm doing this for mates rates... Now my problem is, he currently has a website, which he wants to rebuild... That's cool, i can do that... But he wants a log in function for his clients to log in and access their files, download and/or upload files...

    I have no idea when it comes to data bases and things like... So pretty much I need a crash course on data bases...

    I have been doing some research and found that mysql and phpmyadmin are the best for it... I then spoke to my brother who suggested "You're better off using the security built into the webserver (.htaccess files) than SQL, because SQL and PHP both run on top of an existing webserver, and are both unsecured protocols (read up on 'SQL injection')."

    Thanks in advance guys.

    - Pete

    No need for database logins for small sites. Just password protect the dir with htaccess and htpasswd.
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.
