    New too webdesign and need help.

    Hi guys great site but I need some advise.

    I have a basic website, and ive managed to make a Form page with a small bit of JavaScript that sends the form info to my webaddress that's all working great but I am wanting to make the site so when that forum data is received the site assigns a account ID number back to the person who has filled in the form.

    I am understand I need a database for this but iam not sure how to do it can you guys help.

    The site goes like this. You go to the site you click on a sign up link it takes you to a page that has the form on it you fill your details out in the boxes and you click send, then after a few mins you receave back a email with a ID number which is like a account number.

    The ID number must change for each user and it must store that info on the server so it can be looked at by myself.

    I am a complete novice so a easy step by step reply would be really helpful
    Cheers.

    You'd need some sort of a server side language such as PHP to accomplish what you want, and a database such as MySQL. When the form's filled out, you'd use PHP to generate the MySQL queries so that the record gets inserted into the database table, which if configured correctly, will have the ID number in question automatically generated. From there, you'd use PHP to email the number to the user.

    That's about as close as I can get to an easy step by step reply.

    All? I'm the only one who said anything. Say what?

    By the way, did I miss a tectonic plate shift?
