    Inputting into mySQL?

    Hi!

    Whats the easiest way to input data into mySQL? I've heard you can do it through telnet, but this seems like a pain in the butt.

    Whats the easiest way? and how easy is it?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    The easiest way is to create a web-based form which allows you to input all your desired fields. Then you can also have it check for errors (so you don't input wrong data, for example a string when the column is of type integer), plus you can manipulate the data accordingly before it's added to the database (htmlspecialchars, nl2br, addslashes).

    But if you're new to PHP, definitely go with phpMyAdmin as mentioned above. I do suggest though that you learn how to input data through telnet or SSH. It's always a good idea to learn how the basics work, this is the same reason they teach us how to multiply in school even though we have calculators readily available.
