Create Web Pages That Interact with Users
This chapter will demonstrate how a simple database can be linked to a web page so that the page can interact with users. The general public will have access to the web site but will not have access to the database structure or the data contained in the tables. They will not be permitted to view the protected pages, such as a members only page, because they have no password until they register. However, the web designer must provide a way for users to interact with the database in order to (i) register as a member, (ii) search the database, and (iii) change a password. The PHP language and MySQL code provide the solution.
