I've been looking into PHP/SQL for a few days to put together a new site which can be used by my workplace. After looking at many directions (through amateur eyes), I think the best course of action would be to create a HTML site, which pulls through information stored in a database via PHP.
Before I begin this mammoth task, I have one question which would determine if I continue or not. Due to the devices and locations the engineers work from, the website would need to be put on an SD card. I know this would be fine with a HTML site, but I'm not sure how it works with databases. Would there be a way to store the database as 'static' on the SD card for the HTML site to pull the information from? Or would the database need to be stored on a server?
If the database does need to be stored on a server, would the end user need signal to access it?
Sorry for posting a vague question on here, but I really haven't had any luck from Google,
