mysql, php and wizards etc

P: n/a
I need to create a web based wizard, which will ask several questions,
step a user through the process, and then present results to the user in
the end.

I have a basic knowledge of php/mysql/html, but not enough to tackle
this project. I would quite like to have user accounts, which I can
setup in the database, but dont really know about sessions etc. which
would be needed to take the user from page to page, remembering all the
options the user has selected.

Does anyone have any hints or tips, or even better, any idea of
tutorials on this sort of thing?

I know it is a big ask - but having read a fair few things, and
researched the topic, I am still a little confused and need something to
point me in the right direction

Thanks for your time and help in advance

Chris.

codewalkers.com has a number of good tutorials on a wide range of
subjects from beginner to advanced available. They should at least
help you get started.

Just off the top of my head it sounds like you need a series of forms
(HTML) with the appropriate input validation (PHP) and saving it to the
Database (PHP and MySQL). Whether you choose to save it to the DB as
they go or save the data as session variables is up to you and your
requirements.
