Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
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 - .
That is bunch of questions all at once. We can't really explain how to do all of that but we can point you in the right direction. php.net is the site I use. Here is the link to the basic tutorial.
They have all of the documentation online, you can search the complete function list etc.
For the flat files have a look at DBM Functions [php.net].
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).
