    Unanswered: Connecting sql db to an html website

    Does anyone know a good site that has a tutorial? I want to be able to input data from the website straight to the db i.e. place orders, check status of order.

    There are hundreds of web sites like this, each catering to a specific web site configuration. The methods for accessing the datsbase are different for ASP, COLDFUSION, PHP, etc.

    I was looking through the forum posts and the closest thing I could find was a link between asp and sql. I do not know asp, but was wondering if there was one for just a regular html website.

    straight from the html to the database? not possible

    has to be done using some type of server side program, generally called "cgi" (common gateway interface or something like that)

    asp is a type of cgi program, so is perl, coldfusion, jsp, php, et cetera

    Do you know of a beginners guide to using this? Php I'm a little familiar with and thought of a solution to take a mssql db and importing it into a mysql sb; only problem with that is having a php script that will run it
