I am seeking some advice, as I am in the process of helping a friend develop a website. Basically an online store that will have a catalogue of 1,000 items.
I know that doing it the old fashioned way (Creating an HTML page manually for each item) is not practical. I know that I will have to use a database solution of some sort in order to accomplish this task.
My question is this. What is the best solution to taking a web template of my design, and integrating it with a database solution so that we can have a database of products easily updatable without having to manually create HTML pages for each product?
Any and all help would be highly appreciated. I am pretty good at designing HTML/web site designs, but when it comes to database, I am still quite the newbie.
