Hi, I have a already designed web page with tables and stuff, but there are challenges for me to insert or include php and inserting the data that is from mysql to the tables in the webpage. I do not know how to do it to maintain the integrity of CSS.

I have include the html codes below and if someone could let me know where should i place the php coding to connect to the database and how to display the datas in the table without sacrificing the looks of the page.
