Hi

We are developing a website, and I need to add a button named "Forget password" and once user clicks on that, I need to ask the username  from the user. once he enters the user name then I must send a new password to his mail id. Only registered users can get their new password.

Hi

Here is my deal. I am  going to add a new button in my login page called"forget password". once user click on this then it will go to "forgetpass.php", there i will ask user-id for the user,once user click the submit button then it goes to other php for the result.

The problem is, I am not able to go to any page from login with out submit.

http://localhost/starfish/login.php

I think they have set it as default page.

if i try

http://localhost/starfish/user.php

then also it is going to  http://localhost/starfish/login.php

i am using apache server for php and mysql database

please suggest me.

Apologies for once again posting links for you.  
I don't do that very much, But in the question you asked ,
YOu;
""$$Forget password" and once user clicks on that, I need to ask the username  from the user. once he enters the user name then I must $$#send a new password to his mail id. $1Only registered users can get their new password. "
This Software;
"$$Forgot Password PHP Script on asking the Username from user $$#sends the password to the users email account on checking if the username exists or not and if the email address exists or not for that username. $1 Also it is checked if the account is active or not."
