I am in the process of creating a html website and I am interested in using secure logins. I have tried protected directories, but this is not what I want.
What I want is for a student to go to the homepage and a login box is presented asking for a username and password. Then depending on the username, it re-directs you to a certain webpage depending on year group. I have heard that this can be done thorugh a sql database that contains a table with username, passwords and year groups, but I DO NOT how to even start doing this, as I don't know sql, or php and I have only just started buiding websites with dreamweaver.
Can anyone help me to achieve this?
