I’m still a novice at PHP and have only nibbled at MySQL, which I find very intimidating. It just occurred to me that the greatest learning tool would be an actual working model that I could study and manipulate. It would save me from asking a zillion questions over the next few weeks.
So, is it possible to copy a simple MySQL database and one or two pages driven by that database to another website. In other words, if I found a willing donor, could I find a data-base driven page on my website fifteen minutes later that I could download and modify?
If it’s impossible, then I might ask if anyone would be willing to help me visualize a simple database system and post the code for it. For example, let’s say I have a website that focuses on the six continents, the three major North American nations and four states (Alabama through Arkansas).
And let’s say I have a database that features each jurisdiction’s name, abbreviation, capital and linking code - like world/na/us/ak for North America > U.S. > Alaska.
What would the source code of a page driven by that website look like?
