What i am looking for, is two simple boxes that are for User Name and password. And when you type in those and click submit it saves both user name and password into anoter file or page, whatever. How can i go about doing this?

Thanks
Train

this is generally handled by PHP, ASp, or Perl CGI. This info is stored in a database on your server.

You may run in to a slight problem getting any further information on this since it is commonly used in Phishing Schemes and other scams.

Usually when it comes to passwords and usernames they are used to access certain parts of sites. This info has to be placed on the database for it to work.

Can you give a little more info as to why the user is needing to submit this info?

Well what I want is just a small area where users can enter there desired user name and password and then it is saved in another file. Then because its just a small group of users I can add them to the list of who is aloud to do what and where without a lot of hassle.

Thats pretty much what I need.

as I stated in my last post, you need to use either PHP, Perl CGI, or ASP to accomplish this. then the info is stored in a database on the server so that you can get that info.

There is nor pre-arranged scripts for it, and you have to set up the database table in the mySQL on your server using a program like phpMyAdmin.

yes it's free, you can download it from http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/
you cannot access any mySQL databases with it that you don't have authorization. if you have an apache server on you computer then you will be good to go. most good webhosts supply phpmyadmin in their user control panel so that you can set up db tables on the server for your website.
