Hi! I am starting to make a website using PHP, well, I want to use PHP, but I have no idea how it works, with all the 'databases' and MySql...
Well, I am going to make a site, and users can sign up and get points and everything. Does anyone here know any good tutorials, or something, I'm stuck!
I urge, unless you are completely free, you test what your host supports, and print it out, or keep this webpage, usually people name it info.php and the code inside should be
If that doesn't work, your host most likely doesn't support php. You will need to see that information when building websites, I also highly reccomend, even though not required, that you learn how permissions work.
first you should try some simple tutorials on php, don`t go diving in the advanced stuff, read about variables, array`s, forms, conditional statements and looping statements. Then you must look at some good sessions tutorials so you can understand how to make a login script for your website. If you get confused at the tutorials, take a break, have a cigare and a cup of coffee and try again. You could use a CMS if you are too lazy to learn and do your own programming(like i am when i`m not doing a web site for work(i`m a php programmer so feel free to ask me any questions you may have)). CMS stands for Content Management Sistem. Practically all you have to do is add your content. I`ve posted here in the scripting part of the forum a link to a good place to find open source CMS`s. But you do have to respect the people that made the script and leave the copywright intact. I also suggest you learn first some html so you can understand better how to make a web page. Good luck at it!
