Default Creating a database login

   How do you create a login on my page (www.geocities.com/apocolypse2006) using database which can be updated by the registration bit (instantaneously), I Have never done php so the files would be nice and instructions, e-mail [email protected]
Apocolypse2005, I'm a programmer - of sorts.

Usually, the concept is first you need to have a default login page.
Within that page, you will give an link option to your audience/visitor to register (register.htm) if they don't have a login username and password.
For example, in your register page, ask for information you need and they are
willing to give, say email, name, address, age, gender, username, password, etc.
Once they completed there registration, all information will be stored in your
database. If they forget there username/password, have another link for your audience their email & reset there username/password and confirm via email.
Hope this helps,
John M.

If you're using a free geocities account, I am pretty sure you won't have access to everything (ex: a database) that you'll need in order to create a login. Might not even be able to use PHP there. Last time I checked, it was very limited.
