Hello all. First time post. A little background before I ask my very first NEWBIE question.
Have committed myself to the design of a business software solution for an existing client. For approx 10 years, they have been using a custom MS Access database to keep track of their magazine subscribers. The fellow who designed the app moved on to a cushy governmental job, and has basically left my client with no one to support his work.
To make an already long story short, I have been mandated to deliver a spanking new solution. I thought that the fit was right, as I have been maintaining their IT infrastructure for the longest time.
The database will be accessed by a total of five employees. Three of whom will be strictly reading information that the remaining two employees will be entering. Web access from the web is not required.
Hence my foray into PHP, MySQL, HTML. Have I made the right choice?
I realize that this question is somewhat pre-mature. Seeing as HTML will be used to display much of the content, and that a browser will be used to do so, can I strip the browser of all menus, status and toolbars. Thank you all in advance, and my apologies for the long-winded post.
