Account Script

07-14-2002, 01:34 PM
I am wanting to write an account script allowing for the creation of new accounts on my website (its for a game) and I want it to be written in either PHP(w/mysql), vbscript(dunno if possible) or perl asp (because I dont have regular ASP available to me on there). Which one should I try and learn and use to make it. My friend has written one with ASP but he doesnt know perl asp. I can get one in CGI but I dont wanna do that. So that leaves perl asp, php w/ mysql or vbscript. What should I go for and how hard would it be?

VBScript is out. Without ASP there's nothing there to execute it server-side.

With that said you're left with PHP or Perl ASP, and I'd stick with the first option, PHP. Why? Its more widely used and there is more support for it.

I see what you mean. Since I posted asking I havent been able to find ANY help on perl ASP. I guess I will just learn PHP and MySQL to create the account database. I read a little of a tutorial on MySQL and PHP and it said theres a program to view your MySQL database or something. Have you heard anything about this?

There are administrative front-end programs for mySQL out there,
but you will have to search for them. I had a link at one time, but
I can't find it now.

phpMyAdmin is a fairly standard one.
