    Help Building Website

    Hi, I have been working on designing a website, and would like to have users login. I have tried using .htaccess and .htpasswd files, but I can't get it to work. I am completely new to web design, and know minimal html code. My site is located at http://www.spearfishdebate.noads.biz.

    Please Help!

    This is a homework assignment?

    I like to use server-side with a database to user login and members info storage.

    Google "php login scripts" and you will find lots of free code to use for a login section for your site. You would need a simple MySQL database with maybe 2 small tables.

    A new user comes to your site and automatically is taken to the new member sign up page. You have them fill out their username and password and these get stored in the database. Then the next time they visit the site, they can click a link to take them to the members login page.

    I might also suggest you just install wordpress. You pick out a theme for your site, and then install the plugins you want(like a user login section).
