Having trouble getting started

Having trouble getting started

Hi All
Am a dreamweaver user and have just purchased the "User Registration Solution Pack". I run a sporting association website in Melbourne Australia, VBSA.org.au WE have a php database running and would like to develop a members area. Am having trouble getting started - have created the table but cannot get the next step. It appears that he Connections/localhost.php file creates the global settings? Or am I totally lost?
<?php
# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_localhost = "What goes in here?? is it the URL of the site?";
$database_localhost = "is this what dreamweaver refers to My SQL connection as the database name?";
$username_localhost = "please type your username";
$password_localhost = "please type your password";
$localhost = mysql_pconnect($hostname_localhost, $username_localhost, $password_localhost) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
?>
Maybe I am just having a senior moment? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Not sure what you else need.

The hostname is where your database server is. Usually localhost
$hostname_localhost = "localhost";

The database is whatever you named your database when you created it
$database_localhost = "databasename";

The username is the name of the user you created when you created your database
$username_localhost = "username";

The password is the password you assigned to the user when you created your database
$password_localhost = "password";

Thanks for your patience, unfortunately mine is running out. Have it working, the information is inserting into the database, except for the verification email. I received the verification email but when I insert the url into the browser I get a 404 error
users_Confirm.php?ID=2&code=jsklRJR8bjdqQp6Bg606
it appears it is trying to navigate to the root directory of the site, have I missed a setting?
Thanks again for your assistance

Make sure that this is set properly:

$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL
= "" ;

You must end the path with a /

If you installed the pack in a folder called reg it would look like this:

$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "reg/" ;

Sorry, this has gone on too long, it should be simple I am sure
Have set
$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "http://www.vbsa.org.au/Bus_Registration/" ;
And it returns
No such file or directory in /home/vbsaorga/public_html/Bus_Registration/users_Confirm.php on line 2
If I browse to
users_Registration_Simple.php
It brings up the file
So what am I doing wrong?

If the URL that you are seeing in the email is:

users_Confirm...R8bjdqQp6Bg606

Then you probably did not update your WA_Globals.php file after you updated it to:

$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "http://www.vbsa.org.au/Bus_Registration/" ;


The url you should see in the email should look something like this:

users_Confirm...R8bjdqQp6Bg606

So... I removed the folder from the site and uploaded the Bus_Registration folder again
Got to the confirmation email and with this url ...
users_Confirm.php?ID=2&code=jsklRJR8bjdqQp6Bg606

this returned
Warning: require_once(../WA_SecurityAssist/WA_RandomPassword.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/vbsaorga/public_html/Bus_Registration/users_Confirm.php on line 2

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../WA_SecurityAssist/WA_RandomPassword.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/vbsaorga/public_html/Bus_Registration/users_Confirm.php on line 2

It's got me beat?

On your users_Confirm.php page, on line 2, the require once should like this:

require_once("WA_SecurityAssist/WA_RandomPassword.php");

instead of

require_once(../WA_SecurityAssist/WA_RandomPassword.php);


When moving the user registration files to a sub folder, you don't need to update the path, because they are document relative.
