    Naughty... PHP...

    okay..... now, i've been learning ahem, ASP, and getting there slowly. Now I like ASP and everything and it is better than PHP IMO .

    BUT My host doesn't support ASP, but they do support PHP, but not mysql. (moving to new host after my account finshes in a year )

    Confused?, no, good. What I want to know is PHP usable for anything usefull without Mysql. I'd be gratefull if you could give me a few site that have some newbie tutiorials...

    thanks.

    How about form to e-mail? Cookie setting? (Which in turn can be used for "preference" setting). Browser detection and appropriate file serving?

    There are many ! . It is better when hooked up to mySQL though!

    Good php sites:- http://www.phpbuilder.net/

    Where have you been for the past 3 years?

    PHP is one of if not the best server side scripting language. It supports Error Handling, Creating and manipulating images, HTTP authentication with PHP, Cookies, Handling file uploads, Using remote files, Connection handling, Persistent Database Connections, Safe Mode. If we get into databases you may also think as far as I can remember of Oracle, SQL, MySql, MsSql, ODBC, POSIX, CORBA ... Well, if that is not enough you can also play around with Socket functions, XML functions, IMAP, POP3 and NNTP functions...
    Summing up I would say it is a little bit more usefull than what you can think of multiplied by 100.

    using MyODBC you can tap into Access. That would work. Do they offer any database? Most any database should be able to be connected to PHP via MyODBC.
