The site is more or less dedicated to Director/communication with online
database. Lots of helpfull stuff, including a section about mySQL.
Yes, I'm actually there now. I'm not sure I understand all of it though, or any of it..
I just don't know where to start. I've downloaded MySQL and installed it on my homecomputer - but there's a connectionerror when I try to configure the server using their wizard. I don't have a firewall at the moment, so I don't know what could be wrong.
The code on the page on Shocknet named "MySQL - Database Connections", is that what I should write in my directorscript or what?
I just want to check if I'm thinking right:
To make the database I use MySQL (if I get it to work). And then I store the database on a server (Can I use my homecomputer for this - until the game is finished?)
Communication between the database and the game is done with netLingo?
Communication between the homepage and the database is done with PHP?
Simple questions from a very confused gal..

Hope it helps.
