    Unanswered: Dont know which database to use for the following site

    Hi All,

    Just wondered if i could ask you for some advice and help.

    I'm looking to write a site, and one of the functions of the site is to remind the user of a certain event at a certain time. I was wondering how i would do this? or if anyone has a working example i could use?

    Also I dont quite know what database to use...... would MySQL do the function i am after???? If so then no more problem lol If not what database would you recommend i use?

    Thanks

    Danny

    do the whole thing in clipper or ada as the front end code.

    Well im looking to do it in perl. But thats not really my skill, but its a good enough time as any to start learning it. I know more asp than anything.

    The only issue i have is, the site is hosted on a NAMESCO server that has MYSQL. And as i have never used MYSQL i dont know how to configure it....... not only that, i could probably know how to set it all up if i had some sort of interface to it. But theres nothing.

    Probably me having a noob moment, but anyone know what i mean?

    Thanks

    well, you can use asp with mysql as well

    your interface to mysql could be one of the mysql utilities available on the mysql site

    or you could use Heidi SQL, which is what i use, it's really great
