I'm new to all of this, but I'm trying to link my HTML file to SQL to get coordinates for a Maps API.

I've got a map poputlating, but i need to manually put in the data. I want it to populate automatically when opened.

so far i have my HTML reading:

<script type="text/javascript">
var locations = [
['address 1', Lat, Long, 1],
['address 2', lat, long, 1],

My sql DB has the info set out in the same format, i just dont know how to link the HTML with SQL.

Would anyone know how to script what I want to link the HTML to SQL with a PHP with the format that I need?

the readme for the API should give instructions for what you are asking to do. as each and every API is different, and the only code you gave is javascript, we heve nothing to work with to help you. If you want code written for you stick a thread in the freelancing section and someone should contact you with a price.

Please: "This doesn't work..." is not a question.  We're not the government: we don't have anything to view what your doing on your computer.  Help us help you by asking a good question.


"Things needed to ask a "good" question:

  • A description of the context of your issue (Optional but can be a huge help in certain circumstances)
  • What is the actual problem (Mandatory)
  • What does the code actually do (Mandatory)
  • What you think the code should do / What you want the code to do (Mandatory)
  • What things have you tried so far (Optional, but missing it out just wastes your time and ours)
  • The actual code as you are running it - minus any personal information like Database Login Credentials (Mandatory - don't just post pseudo, the vast majority of issues are syntax and not logic)
  • As much info about your development environment as you can give - even if it's just letting us know you are using a hosting provider instead of a local install (Optional, but some questions can not be answered without it.)

My Bad,

I've got the .php file outputting xml, and also another .php file outputting .csv from the SQL database.

i just cant figure out how to link the .php file to my HTML with the variable "location".

We can't either, without any code. For we are not sitting there looking over your shoulder. So, if you want any help, you will have to post the code you are looking at.
