Creating a Membership System
(Page 1 of 4 )

One of the most unique and handy features of PHP and MySQL is the ability to create a user based login system for your website. With this feature your website can grow far beyond what you expected it to. Your website can become a community and it can become very interactive, therefore bringing users back to your website for more action.

During this tutorial I will show you how do the following:

  • Collect information about the user during signup and store that information into MySQL
  • Generate a random password and encrypt it into the database
  • Validate the user's email address before they can login
  • Create a login system for the user to validate his/her information against the database
  • Create a lost password recovery tool
  • Basic Form handling with PHP
  • Some PHP Session basics
  • Use the Mail function to send the user an email
  • And Much more!
Let's keep in mind that this is all psuedo code. It may or may not work on your system without some type of modifications. If you read this tutorial carefully, I am sure that you'll figure it out with minimal brain cells wasted. Also, I would like to point out that this tutorial is based upon PHP 4.1 and later with register_globals turned off. Are you ready? Let's move on to creating the database.
