    where to start when writing a server?

    LukeElChul

      Ok ive made a simple login/CreateAccount system using as2 and i used cookies to save the infomation of the user.

      Where would i start in wrighting a server or database where I could save the infomation of the user in there and how could I host this.

       

      Ive have knolage in as2 and a bit in HTML, but ive got no knolage in servers or database's

      so could you please give me some links and explain how this all works.

       

      Heres my as2 login code if you need it.

       

      It needs alot of patching but it is ok for now.

       

      .......................................................................................... ................................................................................

       

      var saveData:SharedObject = SharedObject.getLocal ("BoldonComputersAccount"); //Name of the cookie to be saved in

       

       

      var Invalid:String = ""; //text file what pops up if the password is wrong

       

       

      var InputPass:String = "";//the users input

      var InputUser:String = "";//the users input

       

       

      var Username:String = "";//there username

      var Password:String = "";//there password

       

       

      var Email:String = "";//there email not necessery

       

       

      function Names(){//Change the username and password to new_username and new_password

      Username = new_Username;

      Password = new_Password;

      Email = new_Email;

      SaveInfo() //save the username and password and email if entered

      }

       

       

      function SaveInfo() :Void{ //the save function

         

           _root.saveData.clear ();  // clear current saved data

           

           // record variables

           _root.saveData.data.Username = _root.Username;

                 _root.saveData.data.Password = _root.Password;

                 _root.saveData.data.Email = _root.Email;

           

           // save as cookie (without using this method, the cookie will disappear after the current browser session)

           _root.saveData.flush ();

      }

       

       

       

       

      ///// LOAD FUNCTION /////

      function Login(){

           // load saved data

           _root.Username = _root.saveData.data.Username;

                 _root.Password = _root.saveData.data.Password;

                

                 if(_root.InputUser == Username && _root.InputPass == Password){//if the input is the same as the username and password then gotoandstop(5), there profile

                          _root.gotoAndStop(5)//there profile

                 }else

                 Invalid = "Wrong Password are username" //if the username or password is invalid

      }
