  1. Hi, I want to know a few basic things about using MySQL in a PHP environment, but I don't know where to start:


    I want to make a form on the website and then save all that info of the form in my db (MS Access) that are ofline on my hard drive.


    I have a PHP site.


    Where does MySQL come in on this.


    Can I link the two and where do I start ? :/


    I'm pretty sure it is very easy, I just missing something.


    Thank you

  2. Hi Thelma,


    Yes I know exactly what your saying, it is a big schlep at the moment, but there is a problem that needs to be sorted out between my firewall, auto update and filezilla (which my server provider recommend for uploading). So until that is sorted I'm guna have to go this route, sorry!

  3. thanx to every one above for the help.


    I went and change every thing but still a few things Bill suggested didn't work like:


    1) my color for visited added didn't take effect


    2) my change of font-family didn't take effect either


    here is my new code:




    #menu {

    width: 787;

    height: 50px;

    background: url(images/title.gif) repeat-x;


    #menu li {

    float: left;

    width: 131px;

    padding-top: 0.7em;

    list-style-type: none;

    text-align: center;


    #menu ul {

    display: inline;


    #menu a {

    text-decoration: none;

    color: #FFF;


    #menu a:visited {

    color: #22FF00;


    #menu a:focus, #menu a:hover, #menu a:active {

    font-family: "bradley hand itc";



    thank you in advance for the support

  4. thanks Eric I'm guna try it out immediately.


    The second thing is about what Ben was mentioning about the php:


    I know it isn't a php page yet, but if its going to become one later by adding php code, shall I save it now already as PHP or not?

  5. firstly JBall I'm not loaded onto the server yet, I have some firewall issues.


    Ben your right, I don't have the code in here for the rollover, cause I took it out. But also no other image want's to appear there. I used Eric's method of rollover, given in the old forum, when I attempt to add a rollover in my page, but remove it again. I must say I don't understand how to add that code to my php page though!

  6. originally I am using notelpad, but I got DWmx demo from a friend so that I can get the feel of it, and still it gave me BOM when I opened it in DW.


    But I must add, in the mean while while waiting for a reply I went and opened my php & css in notepad and then resave them both under ANSI insted of UTF-8 and the BOM disappear. I then went back and change it back, and as sure as Hell, there they are again.


    I have manage to get my content on css back on my page, cause I was on the wrong level in my link.

  7. I went to the old forum to read up on BOM, I followed the link and still don't understand how to resolve it. Can anybody please give me a quick selotion for BOM characters at the beginning of my web page please. It seems to me it is blocking any thing after it cause I'm sitting with a blank page in front of me!:o


    I have read that people experience this problem if working with php, well I'm working with php if that can help.


    thank you
