- Hello there and welcome to this Dreamweaver course. I'm creating a login for a website using PHP. My name is Candyce Mairs, and I'm an Adobe certified expert and instructor. I'm also a web developer and Adobe moderator. I've been teaching classes on Dreamweaver since version three, and I love getting people excited, and familiar, with all of the various features that Dreamweaver offers. I'm here to simplify your learning process, and move you into the world of dynamic website development.

In order to create a login process, a database must be set up to store user information. This course will show you how to set up a development environment and work with a database from right within Dreamweaver. We will use features built into Dreamweaver to create a complete role-based login area allowing website access based on user roles. Course files are provided so you can set up the development environment and work through the course exercises with me.

Completed code is also provided for code comparison. Dreamweaver offers many features to assist you in creating a login area. Most dynamic websites nowadays, require a login area and I'm looking forward to getting the chance to show you how to do it the easy way with Dreamweaver. Have fun.
