Question.. how are you going to assign them a password when they purchase?Chuck,
I'm very interested in your secure site template but I am absolutely the dumbest person pertaining to programming. I'll tell you what I need and maybe you can tell me what I need to do (or be able to do) to implement this.
I sell a software program (I actually programmed the original but that was 15+ years ago) on my site. I sell it (very rarely, I might add) through Paypal or Google Checkout where the customer just hits a Pay Now button. They are directed to Paypal/Google where they pay. They are then directed to a page on my website (totally unsecure) which tells them where to go to download the program.
I would like to secure this page somehow because as it is now the user can revisit the site anytime or tell his friends about it and they can download the program for free. I now this is stupid but I had a devastating computer crash and had to upgrade to Fusion 11 (to run on Windows 7). My old site was totally lost.
I would like the purchaser to enter their email address and a password on my page (to be stored in a MYSQL database) when they are directed there after purchasing from Paypal/Google Checkout. Then they could see the information they need to download the program. Anyone else coming to that page wouldn't be able to get in without the password. I would like an administrator page so I could lock out email addresses if I needed to, change passwords etc.
Maybe you have ideas I haven't thought of. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
You created the database using the supplied database template?Ok Chuck,
SO I finally got some time to work on the Secure template, and I think I got most of it, it seems like it looks right, but I am getting the error :" Error: Could not connect to database. Please try again later." Where should I start? Thanks, K
I did both, but DB's are not my friend, they single-handedly fry my brain at the site of them. I did the php file too. I have tried it with two different servers, cause I see two in my stuff. I am going to pm you my images. I am assuming it's something with the db, as I am more likely to screw that up.You created the database using the supplied database template?
You modified the database connection file (dbconn.php) with your database user credentials?
