PHP website involving flash + an Access Database
Posted 27 September 2006 - 01:28 AM
i have this website that has a Flash file that needs to save user information into an Access Database, the guys at www.flashkit.com sent me here
my understanding is that flash CANNOT talk to Access and needs a "middleman" to handle database queries and whatnot
i've seen 2 words thrown around alot: PHP and XML, i have a basic knowledge of both
is this the way the program works?
- Flash sends the data to PHP
- PHP converts it to XML
- PHP uploads the XML to Access
- Access uses the XML to create records etc
or am I way off? I really need some help here!!!!
even links to tutorials regarding my question would be great

Alot of web hosting companies offer MYSQL as part of the hosting package.
You havent stated in your post whether you website is running on a webserver that you own or if its with a hosting company.
If your website is hosted with some hosting company, it might be worth checking with them, if your hosting plan includes a MYSQL database.
If its your own web server, you can download and install MYSQL relatively easily from http://www.mysql.com
