You’ll learn how to create a secure, session-based login system in PHP. There’s two versions: 1) a simple non-database version we’ll create first to quickly over all the base concepts. Then 2) we’ll convert that into full-fledged database-driven login script complete with:
- Secure, session-based user access
- User registration
- Remember me feature
- Email-based password reset
- Cryptographically secure tokens
- SQL injection prevention
- Install script
This is an advanced course. The topics covered here assume a certain level of PHP knowledge. It’s frankly only a small percentage of developers in the world who know how to do this properly. I strongly recommend you take my PHP 101 course BEFORE taking this one. Only jump into this when you’re ready to challenge yourself and take your PHP skills up a notch.
