Our website is hosted by earthlink. They do NOT support any databases on their unix hosting platform. Our website was created using dreamweaver. Again-NO mySQL hosting from earthlink.

Can I create a login/registration system without a database using php or other? Any link to the code?

Can I also track when the user clicks on a link to download a pdf. We want to track what the users download on our inhouse SQL Server database (MS CRM package).

I'll search the forum later today for a book or link recommendations...but if you have any suggestions, I'm listening
I am new to php. I have background with databases (access, informix, sql server) and some web scripting (Python, perl, some asp,javascript)

THANK you VERY much!

there is a way to do it, IF they support php you can use xml as the db for user login and such, or just a flat file, or since you want to track users downlods on your inhouse db, you would have to have that configured to accept incomming connections, you could use your in house db for the user login, not the most efficinet way to do it but it will work.

You can use a login script with .htaccess

This is pretty secure, alot more secure than using XML as the database anyway.

i think i saw one on hotscripts.com was under php -> user management i think.

But yes, it can be done.

if there is just a couple of users that are logging in, and will not be changed. then you can just add the usernames in the php page as variables and authorize it that way.

www.freesql.com hosts mysql databases. That's external, but much easier than xml and changing manual stuff.

Your link is bad. It just leads me to a stupid site with stuff I don't care about that seems to exist solely for the purpose of holding the domain.

.htaccess can become rather unwieldy if too many members join.
While it's good for a few users, I found it becoming a right royal pain in the bum when I had 150 members... now I have almost 550, I can't imagine what it'd have been like without a database!
