I’m new here and I need to create a few WebPages. It’s for users to enter data into and the data is stored into a database, Could some one tell me where I would start on a project like this.
I am having trouble choosing a host, I think it’s because I haven’t decided on what I am going to need for this project.
Any help is appreciated
You need a host that offers a server side language and a database like PHP and MySQL.
I want to use ASP so what database options do I have
You want to use Microsoft Access databases, check out www.aspin.com for some tutorials, or maybe even www.tizag.com, that has some simple to follow ones.
No, you don't want to use the Jet database. Look for a host that provides ASP and SQL Server.
OK once I have chosen a host with ASP and a SQL Database, How do I develop my website.
I have written a few basic static WebPages but
Something that confuses me is that do I programme ASP pages on my own machine or the host.
I would program it on my machine then deploy it to the production host.
How would I programme the ASP webpage to connect to the database. or would I have to upload the database aswell
You have to design the database and configure it on the database server provided by your host. You then have to load data into it, which might be interactive item-at-a-time or might be through importing an uploaded file.
