What do I do to setup a database-based website???

What do I do to setup a database-based website???

(OP)
I've worked on quite a few websites using Dreamweaver. But I'm new to databases. I need to setup a website where users can search for churches out of a list of thousands of churches. They can search by denomination, name, location... Can anyone tell me where to start?

RE: What do I do to setup a database-based website???

Start by learning how to design databases. This link will help you get started.

You will need to choose a database to use, and you will need to consider data security on the database and how to connect to your web application. You will also need to know how to write queries against your database. There is a lot to learn. I suggest that when you pick a database, you get a good book about that database and read it.

RE: What do I do to setup a database-based website???

Do you have any programming experience.? This helps if you are planning on writing the application yourself.
For example , a typical breakdown would be :
Front end - html,css etc
Server Side - such as php, asp , to create the recordsets and manipulating information for the user and form the database
Database - such as MySql , or SQL Server , data repository , stored procedures etc

I have touched on html code, just barely, though. The sites I've worked on were in Dreamweaver and it does all the code for you.

There are loads of good quality tutorials on the Internet
which will guid you through the process

Is there a way to put a database such as Access or Paradox on the web for user query access, but not edit access?  We would like to post searchable, cross referenced data.
