    racking my brain on how to do the following:

    1. making a submit form on website, form is ok, need to know how to set up the backend on the server.

    2. make a site where customers can upload pictures via a password. have NO idea on how to setup the backend.

    The best way to do this, for 1 and 2 would be to use PHP and mySQL.

    1. This would be done by adding action="/phpscript.php" and method="post" to the form tag, and then creating the relevant back-end infrastructure within the phpscript.php and your database.

    2. This would be done by doing the same thing, but using an if statement in the PHP, which checks the password against a string in the database or within the same PHP script, and only executes if the same password is used.

    To do these things you must have good knowledge about PHP.
