Need to make a script to send to mysql then create and populate a php page

Discussion in 'Databases' started by static1635, Jan 19, 2015.

    I am a bit of a coding numpty.

    I have a form on my non-profit site that can send a query string to a redirect URL. Currently I take the info and populate a php page by hand!

    Is there a script anywhere that can take the query string, put it into a database, create a page and then populate the page with the info submitted into the form?

    OR how hard would it be to make it myself?

    I have been looking for sometime for this.

    Thanks for any help.

    This is normally what forms do - submit information to either a search-query, or input the information into some sort of storage engine (normally a database) - I'm a little unsure why you do this manually? Why not just have the form post to a php-page which takes the values and inputs them? (You'll have to consider security-concerns, of course, but apart from that, this is quite simple).

    Yes, I expect it is quite simple. I have a form already that can send the values to a php page, the issue is not really knowing how to manipulate it. I guess once I have worked that out I was then indeed worried about the security and wondered if to be safe I should just get an out of the box solution, paid for or not.... just knowing what is best to do

    I doubt you'll find any ready-made solution that will do exactly what you need, but depending on the existing system you're trying to amend, this should be a one, maybe two-hour job for someone competent (given that you have the db-information etc.) Not necessarily full hours, but considered as "minimum billing hours".
