Image Map, SQL and PHP?

I want to know if it is possible to make a server side image map that gets
the link data
from a database using PHP instead of a file.

Yes you can.
You need 'serverside imagemaps'.

Look at this (second example)

This is how it works:
1) use a serverside map.
2) Let the script (the a href-target) catch the X and Y coordinates.
3) Use some routine to decide what area is clicked. (I cannot help here)
4) lookup in your database what link you want.
5) redirect the browser to that link, simply by using headers.

Good luck.
