    Simple PHP shopping cart question

    Hello everybody,

    I am some what new to the developing part of web development, I have a client who wants a shopping cart, but his web host doesnt have MySQL, is there a way to set up a shopping cart without using MySQL?

    You could use text files to store your items/inventory/user info. I'm not sure if any shopping carts offer support for those tho. Does the host offer support for MS Access or Oracle or any other sort of DB system?

    I'd suggest finding a shopping cart that supports MSSQL then. I don't trust text files, so going with a DB is my 2cents

    Google is your best friend, followed closely by PHP.net. After that it's jus a matter of finding a website that has tutorials/lessons that you like. there's a ton out there, I frequent nettuts plus and codewalkers the most but usually I just google for what I'm looking for and go from there, see what pops up.

    And of course here
