    Can anyone recomend an online course or must have book to learn to create a database driven website? I did a SQL course over 10 years ago, is this of any use now?:confused:

    SQL is definitely very useful now. If you want to create a basic database driven website I'd have a look at Wordpress. It's based on PHP/MySQL and very easy to get your head around even for people with very little experience in database driven sites.

    There's a huge community around Wordpress as well so you'll always be able to find help if you get stuck on something.
     
  3. Wordpress FTW :D

    Thanks for the pointer! I have not used Wordpress - can you devlope and test a site off line?
     
  5. if you have a localhost server installed locally then yes :) will need mySQL and PHPmyAdmin installed to make it work :) and iis would help too :)

    Yep, just use MAMP (Mac) or WAMP (PC). I haven't worked with WAMP, but MAMP is really easy to set up and has phpMyAdmin etc included.

    Thank you for the advice - I have just been reading about Apache on the internet. I think I will go the WAMP route.
    Is there any good books out there worth getting?
