  • newbie with questions on site access

    I'm in the early stages of creating my website and have a few concerns that I'd like to post here.
    I'm hosting my own server whcih is running w2k w/phphome to include apache, mysql, and php.
    This will be the first site that I've ever created so bear with me if I don't have the lingo or terminology down pack.
    I have an idea of wht type of site I want to build, how do I go about setting up the major parts to it, such as databses and access? Say I'd like to have a format similar to this one where the user sees the main page and has an option to become a member by creating a user account and loggin in.
    1. Where does that user information go and how is it maintained?
    2. Is this where I should already have a database created in mysql to hold this info or is it stored somewhere automatically?

    3. What do I need to do to prepare for this?

    From what I'm being told, this isn't something that can't be done by a novice, and that spenting hundreds of dollars on a class isn't really necessary. I also have books, but they seem to assume you have the basic concept of web site creation down, and that's not the case.
    Any direction or assistance on these concerns is appreciated.

    A few good resources include:

    Lycos, Inc., is a web search engine and web portal established in 1994, spun out of Carnegie Mellon University. Lycos also encompasses a network of email, webhosting, social networking, and entertainment websites.

    A world community for web developers, evolt.org promotes the mutual free exchange of ideas, skills and experiences.

    Bulletin boards like this one often have the login capacity built in.

    Free ones include YABB and DISCUS (the freeware version).

      Please do not crosspost the same question in multiple forums. This is clearly stated in the rules
