    Hello All,

    I have a website on 1and1 - the business package. It has protected directories, mySQL databases Administration, 1and1 website database, and support for the following scripts: Perl, Python, PHP3, PHP4, PHP5. I think it has .htaccess also.

    I want to set up a Member's Area and do the following:

    1. Require a username and password for access, unique to each user. I need a form for them to fill out, with their info and requested user name and password (that I guess I would store in a mySQL database on the server, right?).

    2. Require authentication or authorization from me to access the area - meaning I want to know who I am giving access to.

    I gather that I will need to us php and a mySQL database. 1and1's FAQ's and tutorials on how to do this are woefully lacking. I cannot find any straight forward directions on how to do this.

    What sites or books would you recommend for me to learn how to do this? (Something that does not assume that I am a mySQL or php whiz would be very helpful ).

    A good script and tutorial on doing this with PHP/MySQL can be found HERE.
