Building a portal to connect to a database - where do I begin?

By dbfg ·
Hi All,

I am looking for advice in building a web portal. I'm no expert in building websites at all, I've had very limited exposure to it in my time working in IT and I have worked with databases.

I've been asked by my company to create a portal that one of our clients can use to input data which we will read into a database. I have already set up the database, since I know how to do this. What I don't know how to do is how to build the website and how to connect that website to the database I have created.

My database is a SQL server database, I created it using SSMS. I was originally going to use Wordpress to create the website, but from what I've been reading Wordpress only seems to work with MySQL and not SQL Server? Basically whatever website I create needs to work with SQL Server.

So what I want really is recommendations to build my website where I will be able to connect to my SQL Server database. Can anybody help?

Happy to provide more info if needed.

Thanks

Hi,,

There are various tutorials you can found on " webpages to sql interaction". It requires cleint facing webpage with html/css/js., and a server side language like asp.net, php, python, etc. to take the webpage information to sql database.

Use html and css to build webpage.

Yes, you can either choose PHP or go for .net language like asp.net or C# for developing the same.
