    Post MySQL and ProFTPd account creation page?


    Right now i am running ProFTPd, which is integrated with MySQL. I can edit my ProFTPd users in PhpMyAdmin (via MySQL), but i was wondering, if i could make an account creation page?
    This is also a question of coding HTML and/or PHP, but that's not a problem, as long as and my HTML/PHP editor is still working

    Thanks in advance

    yes, you could do it, here's a rough outline of the need to happens.

    in PHP you'll have to connect to your MySQL Database (several ways to do it, I use the oldest way)

    If you want you can have this as a seperate file or in the page itself, just depends your style and needs.
    //Connect to MySQL DB
      $LOCATION = "localhost"; //if your connecting to the box the WebServer runs on
      $USER = "root" //change this to your settings
      $PASSWORD = "password" //ditto
      $DBNAME = "ftp" //inital DB you want to connect to, feel free to change
      $link = mysql_connect("$LOCATION","$USER","$PASSWORD");
        die('Could not connect: '.mysql_error());
    Then you need something like the following in another - or same PHP page

     if(strcmp($_POST['password'],$_POST['conPW']) == 0){
      //do the adding of the user to the mysql DB... I'll leave that part to you... few extra line :P
     } else {
      echo "Passwords do not Match";
    <form method="post" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
     <label>Username: </label><input type="text" name="username" />
     <label>Password: </label><input type="password" name="password" />
     <label>Confirm PW: </label><input type="password" name="conPW" />
