I have a login and registration php files already done. I want to figure out how to provide a user created list of movies using php, in my user profile page. When I researched list functions, I only found results involving arrays. The problem with arrays is that it is not permanent.
What I'm looking for would be similar to a Netflix queue, or lists from the myanimelist website, but in this case users can create multiple lists. It would be similar to creating tables in MySql.
Currently, my login and register page will send the user created username and password to a MySql table called users. I am wondering if it's simpler to save the user movie list in a separate table, then show those results in my php page.
