Post 3+ Months Ago

So here's the situation, I've started administrating a computer network and along with it the website. The website's content hasn't been updated in several months and I'd like to set it up so that the boss can updated it via a simple form. I've googled the subject a fair bit and all I can come up with is sql data. I don't know sql and it's another layer, I'd also have to find out if our isp supports it. Does anyone know of simple a php or perl solution? If not what's the best way to go via sql?

Thanks in advance

welcome to ozzu :)

php is definitely your best bet for this, and you wouldn't need a database
at all. Pretty much the gist of it, is a php form would parallel the web
design with fields and format. As you needed to update, you fill out the
form, hit submit, and it updates the actual web page for you, without
having to alter the html. sounds cool right?

It really is, but it's going to have to be customized for your particular
site, and not just a canned script. I would just suggest doing to some
reading on php and maybe find some good tutorials and learn it.

I've done a bit of reading on php in the past. I understand the basic $variable and such. How would the variables be stored though? You have a page something.php with several variables in it, where do they get stored on the server? I'm sorry, perhaps this is a really stupid question and I should go grab a book, which I will do during lunch hour.

I also just found out that my isp doesn't support php... would perl be a usable alternative?
