i am needing to make a database for a website similar to ones found on real estate websites (where you can define the parameters of the property you want to buy - then it takes you to a page with all of those properties). But i don't know where to start. I tried doing some basic tutorials for MySQL but i don't konw where to type it into access etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You can't just use a database. You need something that interacts with the database. You need a server side language. You need to figure out what server side scripting is available to you and you need to consider any previous programming experience you have when choosing which server side language is right for you.
* I thought I had heard somewhere a lot of realtors use a special database geared for realty, rather than a standard server db like mysql or mssql.
Anyone else have any solutions?
If you are going to use MySQL, I would go and install Apache, PHP, and MySQL onto your computer incase you haven't already. If you are on Windows, here is how to install Apache, PHP, and MySQL on Windows. This will give you a local environment to test your stuff. Once you have to working fine locally, you just have to define the same database online and then upload your files onto your online server.
If this is tending towards using mysql and PHP might I surgest the topic gets moved there or someone creates a new thread for it, general is suposed to be for general things(I can't think of what like but there is a separate board for PHP so this thread should definatly go there).
if you've installed it and stuff you'll need to use mysql to create a new database and your table(s).
If you are using PHP please use the [PHP] and [/PHP] forum tags for highlighting...
The same applies to HTML and the forums [HTML][/HTML] tags.
