Hello, i am planning on building a php/mysql database, fairly basic ( 1 table 10 columns 30,000 entries). My knowledge is extremely basic but i have apache/php/mysql installed and have started using the command line in mysql to add my column values. Then i realized, i use dw anyway so maybe i could build the db with that. I have made a ftp site and configured the db connection for dw, but my question is:
is this a good way to go? I assume dw uses proper php-sql code for insertions/inquiries etc so i can always learn from looking at the code. I learnt html from looking at dw code. Or should i go for pure php/mysql without dw? If you have built DBs with php/mysql/dreamweaver i would like your opinion.

I learned PHP/MySQL database-driven websites through DW. It made it very easy to get started. After I got better I realized that DW code is a little bloated. I still use DW, but I always go in after and clean up the code. I will probably continue to use it because I can program faster.
