please help - General PHP + MySQL question
I want to make a PHP + database interface on my site.
I want to have a submnit form where I can add 5 fields of info into the database. Then when I have done this I want to be able to click one link and display the info in that database, much like calling up a list of members to the site.
I want to enter in
name - username - option1 - option2 - option 3
and have it display like:
1) name - username - option1 - option2 - option 3
2) name - username - option1 - option2 - option 3
3) name - username - option1 - option2 - option 3
this is for a membership scheme and I want to be able to look up membername etc and enter in the details when I get a new member.
Can anyone offer me any advice ?
That's pretty easy using PHP and mySQL - Kevin Yank's tutorial will take you through everything you need to know to do that:
That article looks pretty complex, I will read it through, loads to take in though.
Are there any apps I ca install, or tit bits of code that could help me along the way ?
Yes it is a load to take when you are getting started - but trust me it will be worth it in the long run!
Look at the thread in my signature for a whole lot of links to resources - including bundled easy-to-install distrobutions of all the software you need for server side php and perl developemnt.
