the following hack...
Gunther has suggested I write to you regarding a PHP/MySql interface to
produce a database for the web store (database implementation). The hack
requires that the user has MySql installed. However, it still requires an
interface to be written to take the mysql database file to a flat file
database suitable for web store. I am working on that at the moment.
Shouldn't be too difficult. I just thought that someone might have already
Attached is a tar file for
the interface containing the files for this. The files work this way:
- database_frame.html - this is the frames page that holds menu.html and
main.html (at start up) and then the various other pages (add, update,
delete) as they are loaded;
- addplants.php3 - this page brings up a form for inputting new data
- add_plants.php3 - this page shows the new data as it will appear in
- updatedatabase.php3 - this page brings up a page that allows you to
identify which item in the
database you want to amend, and the field that you want to change;
- update_plants.php3 - this shows the amended details of the item just
required (maybe) are to show all of the current fields of the database
so that the right field can be
identified to be updated
- deleteplant.php3 - This is the interface to delete a plant from our
- delete_plant.php3 - this is the companion page for deleteplant.php3
Modifications that might be required - other suggestions needed - are:
- A page that will allow the access details for the database to be
generated for the
"mysql_connect("hostname", "user", "password") routine. This would be
via an include() file.
- A page that will generate the name of the database to be accessed.
- A variable for the name of the table that is being accessed
- Change the names of the files so that they are a bit more generic
- Documentation - as you can see, the routines are something that I have
done for myself and I think it
is all self-explanatory. I may be wrong.
