What do I need to create a searchable & sortable "database" for my site?
| 4:54 pm on Sep 10, 2009 (gmt 0)|
I am creating a site that lists various restaurants & their specials. It has 5 or so fields that I need to make searchable and sortable. Can someone put me on the right path?
Is a database the right option? Other options?

Either you go for a database or a flat file format such as XML or JSON. The final choice is driven by the entire end to end process and shouldn't be taken in isolation.
Having come from a non web DBA background my personal bias would always be towards a relational database.

Great... Think you could point me in the right direction on how to begin setting up a relational database maybe a link to a site or some fourms?
