Data

Hi all,

I am relatively new to HTML, so be kind. I need to build a website that can
input user data. None of the books I have mention it. Where can I go to get
the necessary info?

What strange books are you consulting? :-)
Look up the use of <form ...> and <input ...>.

Apparently, basic. There is no mention of either. I have a more comprehensive
book at home, I'll look there. Thanks

You'd need to buy space on a suitable server, one with a server-side
scripting language (eg PHP, ASP) which can accept input from Forms in your
HTML pages and store the results in a database (eg MySQL, Access, MSDE). If
you want to go the Microsoft route, try www.asp.net, try "Teach Yourself
ASP.net in 24 hours" (SAMS) and fool around with the free WebMatrix tool
from Microsoft. Caution - this sort of web development is significantly
more "technical" than simply laying out pleasing pages, but it isn't rocket
science either.

Hi Philip,

Thanks for the input. I am using a Mac. Anyone have any suggestions?

In that case, AVOID anything to do with Microsoft/ASP.

If you're using OSX, Apache (web server) and PHP come pre-installed,
but require activating. You can also install the MySQL database package
and use these 3 components to build dynamic database driven websites on
your Mac. In the OSX (Unix) environment, you'll be able to test and run
any sites you produce locally on your own Mac before uploading them to
a hosting server.

I'd recommend the PHP and mySQL install packages from
http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/ - installation and setup
instructions are included on the relevant pages.

The technology on the server is entirely independent of the technology on
the development machine, except that you won't be able to use some
development tools (eg WebMatrix). Dreamweaver 2004 (which runs on the Mac)
will support ASP.net (although I've seen a thread this morning suggesting it
doesn't do it very well). If you're hand-coding, it's all the same. You
won't be running on a Mac server anyway! I doubt if you'll get better
suggestions without knowing which tools you intend to use. You may get more
useful answers in a Mac newsgroup.
