I just tried to use the crypt() function in PHP to secure some passwords for my website, with no luck. For some reason, that function is unavailable. Plus I can’t use .htaccess files to control directories, or use PHP to modify/upload files. My current host is really restricitve. I wonder if, even after getting the PEAR DB module (which has been superseded by some other module I don’t remember the name of), I’d be able to connect to a database on, say, my dad’s server, or a friend’s. Considering the security at my server’s location, probably not.
