you dont. your confirmation email will tell them once they are logged in with a random password your script made, then they can go into the profiles section and change the password.

just have a boolean column that is set once they are confirmed. you can check that against another column that holds the value when they first signed up.

Hi Andreas,

Thanks for you responce. I am also wondering how you would do that in the database, i have a table users in my MySQL database containing the users information that submitted when they registerd. Now i want to activate thier account only after they have clicked on the confirmation link... if possible without any additional tables in my db. I users do not confirm thier account i wanna remove thier data from the database after 48hours. Thanks for your time..

Best regards,

Davy Obdam

hi, too

please don't send password over the internet.
better you ask the user if they click the link
below your email. then the user get a formular
and there you can ask him for his password.
then you can make sure the emails wasn't read
by other user. this is a secure method.
