DB and Webpages

By michaelh ·
I eventually want to add a section on my website that'll accept personalized logins based on the users preferences, something like a my.yahoo.com for my employees, however I'm not sure where to start. Any suggestions on what I need as far as software/hardware and programming?

DB and Webpages

by donq In reply to DB and Webpages

You provided to little information to help much but here goes:
1. Your web server MUST support database software (i.s., Microsoft's IIS). 2. If the project is not to large (25 fields or less I would suggest Microsoft's Access 2000. You can quickly build and test your entire application, and after everything is working as expected you can recreate the Forms as web pages by clicking the "Pages" tab in the database window. Again if the application is small leave everything in Access, If it grows automatically upsize Access stuff to SQL Server with a click of the mouse. Well that's what Microsoft says but it is a little more involved than that. If you are going to host the thing I would suggest purchasing Microsoft's IIS server and Access only to hold costs down. Do your development and everything on one machine and when you are done split things so they can be protected (and upsized only if necessary).

If you are learning new software ANYTHING you do will take time. TechRepublic's Programming section is an excellant place to get Access, and SQL Server help. NT is an place to get IIS help. Good luck.
