Hi all, thought I would throw this up here just to get my head around some PHP. I've been doing some research for a website I'm developing and have got the java and html set, but have got to a part where I have to call in a subroutine php file to allow the user to register, log in, and even manage the users myself so that they are redirected to the correct part of the site after they are logged in (each user will be directed to different parts of the site based off of their needs). Thankfully PHP looks to be based on C and java, something I'm semi-fluent in.
A few questions here, first of feel free to post up any help for the php noob as I'm still doing google research but don't know if I'm staring at the right stuff (so far I'm sticking to w3schools.com... kind of hard to go wrong there I've found). First off I would need three php files, one for registering the user, one for logging the user in, and one for databasing the users information to allow them to log in correct? Secondly, I'm looking at hosts and thinking a free host. I know they can be a little funky with code that I've just been checking in my browser, plus the advertisements all over. Does anyone have any suggestions on free hosts?
