Ok, I really need to come up with a secure( email and password) website login using MySql. My site host uses PhpMyAdmin. I have been searching all over the place for an EASY way to come up with a database and every tutorial has -what seems to be- way more info than I really need for a simple login. I was hoping someone had an easy_IDIOT's guide to do this.
My server is windows, not linux if it matters. Please let me know if any more info is needed.
I know NOTHING about using php/MySql

You can find the necessary, basic, information regarding authentication with MySQL in a thread from out library here: [webmasterworld.com...]

As far as knowing nothing of PHP/MySQL, if you aren't willing to learn everything you need to know about securing your website with the techniques outlines in the thread above, you might want to have someone who is experienced take a quick look at what you come up with given that this system is going to be securing a certain section of your website. You wouldn't want anything to be compromised.

But if you're up for the challenge, we're here to help you every step of the way :)
