4 Publishing MySQL Data on the Web This is itâthe stuff you signed up for! In this chapter, you'll learn how to take information stored in a database and display it on a Web page for all to see. So far you have installed and learned the basics of MySQL, a relational database engine, and PHP, a server-side scripting language. Now you'll see how to use these two new tools together to create a true database-driven Website! A Look Back at First Principles Before we leap forward, it's worth a brief look back to remind you of our ultimate goal. We have two powerful, new tools at our disposal: the PHP scripting language, and the MySQL database engine. It's important to understand how these two will fit together. The whole idea of a database-driven Website is to allow the content of the site to reside in a database, and for that content to be dynamically pulled from the database to create Web pages for people to view with a regular Web browser. So on one end of the system you have a visitor to your site who uses a Web browser to load http://www.yoursite.com/, and expects to view a standard HTML Web page. On the other end you have the content of your site, which sits in one or more tables in a MySQL database that understands only how to respond to SQL queries (commands).
