    Exclamation Beginner - Need Help!

    Hi,
    I have no programming experience in any field and I need help. I want to create a web database with a webpage interface. I want to have a textbox on my site that can retrieve a file if it is on my site. I want to have something that is similar to what the FedEx website has. If you type in the tracking number of your package the webpage will retrieve the information on that particular package. I have already downloaded MySQL and PHP 5. How do I use those programs to do this? Any help would be great! Please email me with any information that would help. I do not check these forums that often - <snip>

    I would suggest you buy Site Point's PHP and MySQL book. I did and it is very good.

    You have a lot of questions that would take books to answer. My advice would be to find some good books and start what can be an exciting excursion in website creation.

    Another option is to hire someone to create what you want.
