      Yes, you are thinking right.
      You can use your local computer running mySQL. Version 5 should work after
      default installation - use localhost or 127.0.0.1 as your serverhost, and no
      username/password when connecting with MySQL Administrator.

      Yes.

      > Communication between the homepage and the database is done with PHP?
      (I normally use asp locally for testing, running on MS IIS server,
      connecting from lingo with postNetText - it works fine.)
      I think you have to run some server service to use PHP locally.
      With the services that most ISP have, it can be a good alternative to use a
      hosted mySQL/PHP, and test it directly on that. You don't have to mess with
      the serversetup, and you normally get a administration area for mySQL - the
      basics are allready taken care of (including easy build of tables and
      connectionstring)
