I am making a game and im ready to add a account creation program on the site but im not sure how. I want to make it use php and the MySQL database if possible, but if not just a cgi script. Anyone have one laying around? ;) Or could possibly help me make one?

This isn't too difficult to do, depending on your skill level. I doubt somebody has one just "laying around" though. Even if they did, it would probably be just as much work to get it meshed into your site as it would be to design it from scratch.

Well I know close to no php and no MySQL. How hard would it be to learn?

Well, if you have a choice, I would learn ASP if I were you. It's a little easier transition from VB.

Otherwise, PHP is a fairly simply scripting language. There are tons of tutorials out there.

Here's one (http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/99/31/index3a.html) that should get you started.

PHP is really easy.

PHP Manual (http://www.php.net/manual/en/)

MySQL is very easy to learn. It isn't really a "scripting" language. It is basically a database in the backend of a webpage.

MySQL Manual (http://www.mysql.com/documentation/mysql/bychapter/manual_Introduction.html)

My web host only supports Perl ASP. That doesnt have support for VBScript so I gave up on that. How long would enough PHP take to learn to write an account script?

If you vigorously learned PHP for a couple hours a day in about a 4 weeks or less you would be able to write that program you desire.
