Getting going

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I just have discovered this whole realm of PHP and MySQL and have decided that I need to learn some of this stuff. I have begun reading the article Build your own Database Driven Website using PHP & MySQL on Sitepoint. I am still foggy on the relation between my pc that I work on (running WXP), Dreamweaver MX, and our webhost (Verio). The article mentions installing php and MySQL...I know that our webhost runs PHP 4.4.1 and I assume MySql also. Do I need to install anything on my machine to be able to manipulate these programs more effectively, or do I work on it somewhere in dreamweaver and then upload? I am brand [i]brand[/i] new to this, so any other helpful "get started" tips that anyone can give me would be splendid!

thanks,
md

as long as your server runs php and mysql, you won't need anything on your machine. In order to use MySQL, you'll need to get a username and password from your webhost and to get php and mysql on the site, you just upload to the server.

Hope it helps!

You don't need anything else on your machine, although having [a href=\"http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/index.php\" target=\"_blank\"]phpMyAdmin[/a] installed on the server would be good.
