Need Direction


#1

Hi,
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.
Thank you

login and password system in HTML? That won't work. Do you know any other languages?


#3

By HTML I mean any other language in code - I know HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and I am learning Bootstrap.

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.

PHP is a valid option, but if you are already familiar with Javascript you can also consider NodeJS. There are plenty of tutorials out there which explain how to make a login, and can also provide you with one. But in what language? NodeJS (which i have no experience in) or PHP? or something else? (ruby, python, golang)


#7

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:

https://www.formget.com/login-form-in-php/

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.

windows is the most used OS, most of the time this is a safe assumption.

as you can see on the xampp download page, there is also a MAC version

You already installed all the components (web server, database, php)? That is of course also perfectly fine
