I need some help with setting up a php page that calls an sql database..
here is what I want it to do?
-firstly: a user must be able to log in(because under this login you must be able to get stats from this user)
Then the user has 3 options (links) for example:
clink chlink elink
when a user clicks a link it takes you to another page with 3 more links.
plink cnlink hlink
(these links takes you to a list of tpics.. same topics for each link)
now I guess what I want to do here is make a counter, so that it couts each time you click a specific link and adds it to a table:
in a table on a web interface..
for me it gets tricky when each user under a seperate username, logging into the same database, should have unique results,,
so you can call.. how many times did jsmith click clink,, for example//
I use Apache server so I want to use php,, i actually like the language,, and I am using mysql for a database, should I need one in this project..
I think I am on the right track with this, what I have done is built a mysql database with the info above in it, and am calling the databse withphp, selecting the appropriate links above... it's just counting it !! no I am stuck!!
Please help ,, Thanks
