Do update the database from the client side you will need to use ajax. Its fairly easy.

you can indeed create arrays of elements in html : use name="chkbx[1]" , chkbx[2] etc.

Or just chkbx[] if you want these fields to auto generate their indices.

chkbox[] also works in php.
it will make the results an array for you to play with
Tell me the problem, I will try tell you the solution
