Yes and it is extremely confussing to find good info so far tho i figured out how to set up the table. I have a table 2 char fields of 20 each and the first field is name second is pass. What do i do to do something tho? I'm confussed.
The reason they are so difficult to understand is they are done with the mysql / php installed on the persons computer. But I am using a webhost with php and mysql. It has these things that make the code for you but i cant figure them out :-/

First before you even go to php+mysql, learn the sql syntax first. Do you know how to use the SELECT, INSERT, DROP, UPDATE, etc. functions for a query for the database?

first thing you should do is figure out if you are using php version 4.2 or later and if so if register_globals is off.
It will save you a lot of rewriting of code since I've noticed a lot of older books and tutorials assumes register_globals is on!

Install apache, PHP and MySQL on your own computer, then you can play around with it easier.

Then find a tutorial on PHP, and see if you can figure it out.

Lots of people here can help you, but you'll have to be a lot more specific about what you need.

You haven't told us what you're trying to do, only that you dont know how to use SQL.
