I hope you're doing well. I'm new to PHP and currently working on a project where I need to implement a user authentication system. I've been researching and I came across the concept of password hashing and salting to enhance security.
I understand the theory behind password hashing and salting, but I'm struggling to find a PHP program that actually demonstrates the implementation. I've read about using functions like `password_hash()` and `password_verify()`, but I'm not sure how to put it all together.
If anyone has a code snippet or example that showcases a basic user authentication system using password hashing and salting in PHP, I'd really appreciate it. It would help me understand how to securely store user passwords in my system.
Thank you in advance for your help!
