I'm currently trying to build a administration dashboard using bootstrap. I'm only a beginner but really willing to learn. I've been going to night school at my local college but unfortunately this has finished now and it was only an introduction to web development.
I currently use a bootstrap web application at my place of work but I would like to build my own that I can customise to my own requirements.
I've purchased the Smartadmin bootstrap theme when I have managed to customise it in terms of the sidebar menu's etc. but I'm struggling to understand how I link this to a Mysql database.
I have a number of questions such as how I setup the login page so it points to the page when users first go on to the website, also I need to understand if I need to use PHP to make the dashboard link with the MySql database.
I'm not looking to be spoon fed because I really want to learn how to setup and manage the website but would be grateful if I could get assistance and support from the members of the site.
I fully understand that this is a long term project and it's not going to be easy to complete but I've been wanting to learn web design for a number of years and feel that I'm getting somewhere with Bootstrap but still only a beginner.
I've done a number of online courses on HTML and CSS so understand the fundamentals.
Can I ask if someone will be able to assist me with my project please?
