I want a script on a website that allows the user to choose a username and a password. This project is for a forum. This will give them permission to post to the website. Any user should be able to read any of the post even if not registered. Take this website as an example. Anybody can see the bids, but to post, you have to have your own username. It should also include a "forgot your password" link where they can retrieve their old password or change it.
All I am interested is in the registration part. If the other is not possible, that's ok. If possible I would like to be notified when there is a new registree.
This script or program is to be used on a forum. I created the forum using php but most likely anyone can post on it without registering.
I am using a remot webhost. (yahoo webhosting to be more specific) so if you are familiar with it, that would be better.
This webhost allows to write your own perl scripts as long as they have the .pl extention.
If you think you can do this with other programing language that's fine.
Please let me know if you have other questions, thanks.
Script or program ready to copy or install on my webhost (yahoo webhosting).
I should be allowed to test it first, prior to payments. (for webhost and platform compatibility purpose only)
Specific instructions in how and where to install it. (Don't worry I have some knowledge)
I have a computer at home which has Windos XP Home edition, but my website is on a remote webhost on yahoo webhosting. To give you an idea of what yahoo webhosting is, is just like geocities with the difference that yahoo webhosting charges a monthly fee so that I can install php, perl, js, and other script and programs.
Anyways what I am trying to say is that I dont know what platform are they in. I would say Linux I dont really know.
