Background on the User Registration Website
We are about to embark on what I think is a fairly in depth template to do
This page will make use of all the different HTML form controls. It is important to be able to work with all of these when developing
The application is essentially a profile manager for an ecommerce store. But we will supplement it with other features.
Developing such a profile manager requires developments on the user and administrative sides. But some of the main differences between how the user and administrative portions should work are listed in the following table.
|Display Users||Likely to be restricted in some way||Display everything about users|
|Add a User||Add only themselves||Add anyone|
|Delete a User||Delete only themselves||Delete anyone|
|Modify a User||Modify only themselves||Modify anyone|
|Find a User||Find anyone|
|Browse||Browse all entries|
|We will implement these capabilities on both the user and administrative sides in separate webs. We also need some sort of security measures to ensure only particular people can implement their appropriate capabilities. The following table outlines the security measures.|
|Users will be required to enter their email address and password to authenticate their operations on their own record.||A login page will be processed to produce a session variable. This session variable must be present during a session for every page the admin tries to access or else they will be redirected back to the login page.|
|Based on these criteria we will develop two different sites which record information in a MySQL database.|
