Many interactive websites nowadays require a user to log in into the website’s system to provide a customized experience for the user. Once the user has logged in, the website will be able to provide a presentation that is personalized to the user’s preferences.
A basic login system typically contains 3 components which can be created using PHP and MySQL :
Component 1: Allows registration of preferred login Id and password.
This is created in simple HTML form that contains 3 fields and 2 buttons:
1. A preferred login id field
2. A preferred password field
3. A valid email address field
4. A Submit button
5. A Reset button
Lets say the form is coded into a file named register.html. The following HTML code extract is a typical example. When the user has filled in all the fields and clicks on the submit button, the register.php page is called for.
[form name=”register” method=”post” action=”register.php”]
[input name=”login id” type=”text” value=”loginid” size=”20″/][br]
