    anyone think a captcha will prevent it?

    I'm trying to find a good place to get started to prevent brute forcing etc on user accounts for my website. Right now I have a php login script and a mysql database where i manually add users then md5 the pws. Google was really no help found 1 topic about it maybe im wording it wrong in searches

    Hi Sean,

    Take this into your login php thread as it pertains to that and you will get a better response if people know the whole story of what you are doing.

    Thanks :toast:
