Report Why Php And Mysql? Are They Necesary? in XML Posted February 26, 2009 Hi JoshI'm also newbie, but it seems you're more newbie than me. I'll try to explain you some things, but time should show you I'm right.MySql is structured query language, where you store your data. Everything, just everything: text, pictures, all kind of graphics.You can keep all your net 'welt' on databases.When you make pages, design any kind of activities, you need php code to give a form, insert, design, write any kind of thing you mean is useful for you.Through php code, you upload, download, fetch and do many other things, which later on, when you learn these things, you'll notice make your job easy and safe.Try to download xampp (three servers in one), there you have phpmyadmin, a wonderful co relation between php and mysql.I will not attract your attention, better first get informed, do some exercises, and then ask more. Without these two things, forget, just forget to do anything serious on web.Courage and go on.
