Can anyone point me in the direction of any website(s) which will assist me in creating a fully functional login and password system in HTML as well as a fully functional forum like this one. Any links would be helpful.
login and password system in HTML? That won't work. Do you know any other languages?
I am guessing this task will need to be performed by a language such as php - which I do not know. Anyhow, can you provide me with any website which can explain and guide me though the process?
You will need to choose a database query language to use. PHP has a mysql extension (mysqli).
Just read the documentation for it.
Thanks for the reply I will look into each of the languages to determine which one works best. As far as exploring new languages goes, I will need to do some research to understand what i am doing. NodeJS may be something to look into however I was looking at PHP the today and found it to be quite simple.
Thanks for the help!
start by learning PHP. The problem is that some/most tutorials don't take the necessary security measures which are needed.
Here is one which includes everything:
including the DB setup.
But then again, this tutorial doesn't have a kill if the DB connection is not successful. You should have that.
Assuming you use windows, install XAMPP, this gives you a webserver + DB + php, that should help you forward.
Sadly, I have created my website on a mac but I will move it on to a Windows and install XAMPP.
Thanks for your Time!
Ok will look into that too.
