I am making a website and wish to store the data of users that log in into a SECURE database.; their username, URL, profile picture and points.
I am currently working on and studying game development so don't plan on spending too much time learning complex new coding languages. It was recently suggested to me that I learn Ruby on Rails, rather than mySQL and object oriented PHP. I currently have half a website built with HTML that uses some PHP (not coded by me).
Using Rails, can I set up a secure database to store information that can be accessed and changed by the website but untouchable to users?
