Setting up a database for a simple form

Recommended Posts

I am completely new to MySQL and need some help setting up my form to pass variables into a database.I have a form that has 5 fields and I want the form data to pass into a MySQL database, so I can regularly view all of the entrees that have been received. I have my form created already and need to set up the database. Can someone please walk me through this process?

have you tried looking up this information? There's a site very near here that has tutorials...what's it called.... ????basically you are going to want to create a DB, create and name a table within that, and there create a field for each form field you want to save. add an extra one so you can create an ID field to uniquely identify each unique entry in the database. (also take the time to look up primary keys and auto increment.)then use that magical mystery website somewhere near here and affiliated with this forum for looking up how to interact with MySQL. The rest is all very simple.
