hi dean,

it depends on your webhosting. quite often if you're hosted on apache/linux, mysql will be available to you. if that is the case take a look at [mysql.com ] you'll find everything you need there.

Hello :)

I am also quite new to databases, from what I can gather it all depends on your hosting company and what they can offer you.

I have gone for a MYSQL database and I am presenting the information from it in PHP.

I asked a very similar question and the help I got was spot on

If its possible that is!

You need dreamweaver unltradev or MX.

Very quick and easy to get to grips with it.

Consider php and mysql, a little slower to learn than ultrdev approach but you have better control over the code you use.

MX and PHP is the way I went, it took a bit of understanding but I think I kind of have the knack now :)

I purchased this book

Dreamweaver MX: PHP Web Development

It was very helpfull

:)

[Please just give book name and let users shop themselves, saves alot of hassle :) thanks - JamesR, mod]

its ultradev 4 i'm using! Is that enough?

Are there any begginers guide sites out there?

There are loads

udnewbie.com/home.cfm
basic-ultradev.com/articles/

Are just two, do a search for UD tutorials you will find boat loads. You will need PWS or IIS on your own machine to play with.

Ultradev 4 is a GREAT way to get stared, but MX includes support for PhP, which would be an option if you are on linux/apache.

The tutorials are excellent, and once you build a few pages you can study their code, do a little bit of SQL study on your own, and you'll never need DW again.

But it's the best way to get started without having to buy anything.

The Dreamweaver Ultradev 4 tutorial is all you need.

Why do you want our templates? Just work the tutorial.

DeCal, if you head over to one of the major script repositories, thousands of scripts are available utilizing many scripting languages and database platforms. That is the working template you can play with. For you, I would look for a simple script that uses ASP and Access.
