    Thanks for the wonderful tutorial, that’s a lot of work!

    One problem, though in your “Users_tbl”, the password field needs to be longer, maybe “varchar(110)” rather than “varchar(100)”. The SHA512 hash is several characters too long, so gets automatically truncated. I spent quite a few hours on this before I could successfully log in!
