A single table containing all the users friends would be best, but may be difficult from the server side.

Yeah will have a look into it :D

You could just do a JSON array of IDs.

Just for help, each request from the server that is a get type that will get like messages, or users or apps etc, or even get a profile, will come back as a Lua formatted array, so all you would do is readAll and then unserialize :D

Not decoding, encoding only.

Regarding JSON, I simply meant as server side storage. You just have an array like this: [1, 4, 16, 28] and then when you get a user's profile you then turn it into an array of the actual profiles. You should avoid send JSON if you can.

I've got a function that textutils.serialises in PHP from the CC App Store you could use if you wanted.

I actually started with a project like this a long time back, but it was through rednet and flickered a lot. This seems like a great idea and I fully support it, I wish I could help out but I won't have the time sadly, because school and other projects are taking up too much time, so I'll be in the shadows secretly watching this project :P

Edit: Found the old project, it was hidden on mediafire! Here's the link if you wanna check it out http://www.mediafire...cw/CakeBook.zip

Your probably going to say no, but I would like to help you with PHP as I have created the PHP for http://retroservices.16mb.com (im not a web developer) and am very experienced with SQL/HTML/CSS/PHP/PDO.

You guessed it! Thanks anyway! The PHP I will be making as this is not just for the ComputerCraft, it is for a wide range of programs :D

Haha nice, I have so many plans, although I am extending this to node.js and a few CGILua platforms when I have finished :D

I would also like to point out, where is the website? The content of that page is basic HTML markup language? There is no design? I am not ripping you, it's nice you want to help, but more experience is a lot helpful, and being able to make some basic scripts...? This is a full framework I am making not a few PHP scripts :D but it's cool none the less, will have to show me the bank though, like the idea :D

Will see as I am okay with working with PHP arrays for now, but If it would be better to use it I shall give you a shout, thanks :D

I'm gonna be really honest, but I'm looking for a web designer that can make a really simple but effective framework for it. If you want to try it out, maybe me and Jasper will let you use it when it is finally finished. All I do is make the scripts and I can send you a tutorial for how to use the PHP API and the Lua API.

EDIT: here are screenshots of the PHPMyAdmin and PHP code:

Why don't you do:

$query = $mysqli->prepare("SELECT password FROM users WHERE username = ?");
$query->bind_param("s", $username);
$query->execute();

This gives you automatic SQL injection prevention and helps keep things nicer. If you use the statement lots (in one request) you only need to prepare it once and then can execute it multiple times.

Thanks SquidDev, I actually understand what you written for a change! (No offence)! But yeah, I forgot the bind params function :P
