I am glad to find this forum, I have recently been working with a client that does not have any access to a database. They are only allowed .html, .htm, .shtml, and the link. They are in transition to a CMS, a year in the future, and .php is discouraged.
What I am looking for is an easy Flat File database set up that I can use in the backend to populate a couple of different areas of the site. i would like there to be an admin area also where users can update and delete information.
Can anyone give me something to look into? I have scoured the web looking for something, but am not getting any good results. If it comes down to it. I will use .php, then when they switch to the CMS, I'll just update the tables they have when they get a database... I hope.
