Let me explain myself, and then hopefully you can tell me a better solution.
I have paid web hosting (only $2.50/mo) and in the process of learning PHP, have learned how to work with MySQL databases.
I was wondering if it is possible to create a program in C++ that is able to log into the MySQL database (with a hardcoded query) and displayed the returned data.
I would want the returned data to be separated and stored in local variables on the C++ program.
Once I get this working, I would probably split up the program into Client and Server models, and have only the Server query the database. This database would most likely end up being a local SQL database on the same machine the server is running on.
Where do I start?
:) Thanks for the help!
I wasn't clear at the end.
If it IS possible to have C++ query a local SQL database, I would rather do that than bother with hosted databases on a website.
