    Is there a better way to do this?


    On my page the contents are generated by a simple MySQL table.

    I am trying to design a DBMS so that I can easily update it by a web based script (rather than having to go through PHPMyAdmin on my host provider). I will also add other components as and when they arrive on my site.

    It is pretty obvious how it works - there is a select statement that queries by a position field. Values 1-5 appear in the table, then any tune that has position value 6 appear in the "recent top tunes list" (limited to 5).

    I was just wondering is there is any better way to do this (for example serving it with a text file), and advice on the DBMS and the best way of doing it...

    Thanks a lot
