View Full Version : Serious need of MySQL and PHP Help..

11-14-2006, 11:23 AM
Hi everyone,
this may not be the right place to ask - or maybe I shouldn't be asking at all, however, I am in need of some serious help.

I'm pretty much a noob at MySQL at the moment, and need some help with this script I'm wanting to make.

You see, I've tried many ways to set up a "members area" for my website - I tried walking through tutorials that in the end didn't work right, I tried using the simple .htaccess and ran into a few problems.

What I'm wanting to do is make a script that does the following. If anyone can point me to the right direction, or make the script for me (I will be willing to pay), please let me know;

Login Page
Sign up Page (private, so only Admin can register people)
Members area (containing items below)
A "Your Details" section (also allowing them to edit their details)*
Your Plan (also allowing them to change their current plan)
Support area (just a page which I've already made)
And also an Admin area for me to add pages, delete members, edit members, etc.

* The details section is something I was having difficulties in. What I have done and tried so far is making the pages using Php and HTML, as per normal. Then simply password locking the directory. However, when people login, they do not see their own details - they see the details I put in to the page. And so, what I was thinking was that when I register them, there details will be put into a table in the MySQL database, which can then be called depending on their user name to the details section.

If the above list is asking too much, what I would really like is someone to help me or lead me in the way of having a sign up page which enters data into a MySQL table, then, when they login through a php code which links to the MySQL database, it shows them their details on the next page (or when they click on a link and go to the "Your Details" page).

I apologize if this is a noob question, but I've been trying to do this for a very long time. I'm also trying to do the Admin section which allows me to edit their data without going into the MySQL database.

Thank you for anyone who took the time to read and reply, and I hope I can finally finish this after months of trying different solutions..

Try this item (http://www.evolt.org/PHP-Login-System-with-Admin-Features) it is probably what you are looking for.

I'm moving the thread over to the php snippet area of the CodingForums site since your question is more php code related rather than mysql related.

And I am moving it to general PHP, snippets is for ...errr snippets :D

sorry firepages, I thought the first thing the user might do is post a snippet of code they found on the linked page and ask how to implement it. :rolleyes:
