I'm looking to create a site that a user can log into. I have a modest programming background, but have not worked with cookies or SSL before. I won't be hosting this portion of my project on x10 (this will be on GoDaddy), so I have some flexibility in what I can do. I feel that what I am looking to do is quite common, so if you know of a tutorial that covers what I'm about to explain, I'd greatly appreciate a link to it (my searches of the net haven't been very fruitful). This x10 forum is a good model for what I'm trying to do - I'd like a user to be able to create an account (once they've filled in a user name, password and email, they should get an email to verify their email address), and then once they have an account, they should be able to log into the account (and view various pages specific to them, which I presume involves cookies). Later on I'll be looking to add a cart to the site (so individual users can purchase items), so I'd be interested in any tips on SSL as well. My primary goal is to set up a site that a new user can create an account on, get an email, verify their email address through the email, and then log into their account through my website.
