I have a website. I'm using MySQL Workbench 6.3. I have MySQL installed.
How hard can it be to send and receive data from this database, from the website? I don't know php yet, but I can learn it if that's necessary.
What I want is simply to, for example, have a form on a website which sends it's information to the database. I understand about the columns in the database, and I've created a database table thing on the MySQL workbench, but I don't know how to host this database, or how to access it from my website.
Even just some good links would be helpful, as I haven't found any.
You actually can Google but you can go try to learn at the links below:
Hope this links will make your job easier. And a quick tutorial by me:
mysql_*commands are no longer available. Use mysqli or PDO.
Connecting To Your Database:
<?php $conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password); ?>
<?php $conn = new PDO("mysql:host=$servername;dbname=myDB", $username, $password); ?>
Hope everything will work fine, happy coding!
