I am just starting out with web design and dreamweaver CS6, I am creating a site that will have 3 forms for users to send feedback to myself. however I would like to create a user authentification system that will require people to register an account first and then log on to access the forms. How do I go about creating this system using Microsoft access as the database software?

Hi Edbr, its because the current hosting package I am on only supports Access dadatabases, I can upgrade my package to include mySQL but I would like to find out if I can do it on my current package.

h ok, not sure anyone on here has experience, most users go the apache/php/mysql rout so i dont think ( i may be wrong) that you will get much help. maybe with sqlite
there are im sure guides on line though

How would you recommend I go about creating this system and where do you think I can find a step by step explination to create it? I really am very very new to this.

i always recommend php and mysql databases. i have no experience with windows servers.
do you want to test this locally first before goiing live?

there are many login scripts on the web. mostly free.
to some extent it depends what features you require
register
admin permit register
password forget
etc.

things to watch for is make sure they are either mysqli or PDO based so security is taken care of.
passwords should be hashed and if possible salted

2 very good scripts , although possible beyond complete beginers are:_
https://github.com/panique/ several versions there

http://subinsb.com/php-logsys very good but not so well documented
