I have been pondering over this for a while, and I can't think of a good solution. I am writing a webapp using mysql and php. It's not for anyone but myself, to get comfortable with mysql/php. It nothing special, just an app that lets you store bookmarks online. I am trying to make it so that different people can use it by logging in (so that no one else can mess with their links). I want to give users the ability to change their password, but I really don't know how to go about doing that in a safe secure manner. If I did it directly in the access tables, they would have to be reloaded everytime, so that's no good. any suggestions? thanks #airyk I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me? _________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com.
