AJ ....

All of the "members only" pages and functions, such as upload/download
of wedding videos, streaming sample videos on you webpage ... things like
that, would be done using PHP and MySQL databases.

In fact, your site would be PHP based, in that the pages would be dynamically
generated, with photos, galleries, videos, etc. and you could have a CMS
content management system and an online scheduling calendar for showing
your available days for weddings.

But this stuff takes time to program, and lots of PHP experience. If you're
just "starting out", a dynamic site using PHP/MySQL might be outside of your
comfort zone. You might be better off hiring a professional site developer
to handle all of your scripting needs and website design.

We are willing to help solve some specific programming problems, but to
hand-out full working scripts is somewhat beyond the scope of this forum.

For a beginner like yourself, the best thing to do is to dive head first into the PHP manual (http://www.php.net/manual/en/) That is what I did when I first started all those years ago! Goodluck

Yeah i recommend that last post as you probably have no idea what MYSQL is and that is vital you learn that with php.

also have a read of javascript to get an idea of how recognise functions, varibles, operators and such. All can be found @ www.w3schools.com/

W00t! PHP.
