I am primarily an ASP developer and trying to learn more by providing real world solutions for my clients using PHP.
So here goes.
1. How to run PHP in Windows?(anyone successfully done this?)
2. Simple application: ----------------------- a. based on a flat file db(no MySQL) b. has titleŽdetails columns c. display title as hyperlink d. upon clicking on the hyperlink view the details for that title e. the ability to edit this flat file db -----------------------
I could easily do this in ASP - but wondering if anyone can show me how to do this in PHP - would be an invaluable learning tool for those of us not .
Hope I am not asking for too much as a newbie here - . Thanks
PHP must be compiled with dbm support. Check using phpinfo() (Create an empty file and paste <?php phpinfo();?> into it. Request that file with your browser and look for --with-db in the configuration settings).
Maybe I was jumping the gun with the whol flat file db - essentially the issue is that I have no MySQL support for a current project and not sure what to do for a simple application without any type of database software....
