Hi,
We have the information of our clients in mysql database, username, password and email.

Need a php code (preferably) to email client and let them choose the password , and save it to database.

We also need for forgotten password, so email them the link , and they can change the password.

Any suggestion or idea is appreciated.

I can't write a script for you over a 150 point question, but I can point you to good learning resources for anyone who is new to PHP.  Any of the books or tutorials in this article will show you exactly how this is done.  Best of luck with you r project, ~Ray

There are too many possibilities to give you a definitive answer as you have not provided any info about what configuration this will drop into.

A quick google reveals several off the shelf components that you can integrate, some free some not:

Unfortunately that example is old and uses MySQL.  PHP is doing away with the MySQL extension and any code that uses MySQL will have to change. This article explains why PHP is doing that and what you must do to keep your scripts running.
