    Start by taking a look in the php Dealing with Forms tutorial at

    Then, after you see what's going on with the form interface, take a look at the PHP documentation, particularly the database documentation for MySql at The MySQL example code demonstrates connecting to a MySQL database, performing a query, then displaying the results. In your case, you would be issuing a SQL INSERT statement, rather than a SELECT statement.

    Now, as far as the cpanel side of it, I have no idea as to where the data is being stored, or whether it's even available to you for direct manipulation.

    w3schools also has some good stuff on PHP

    fwiw this site is more about helping people develop 'stuff' with databases, in ths case using PHP. its not about learning PHP.. there are better resources out there, some come in book form
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
