Exclamation Red Hat Linux Database Creation


This is a weird question, but I am new to Red Hat Linux 9. I am closely done with Samba, but need some tutorial on setting this up.

But this is what I want to do. I am a real estate agent and I am taking pictures of houses that I just sold and getting the contact information and filing away the contracts.

I want to build a database in Linux to house this information but do not were to start and what tutorials can help can some help me out with this?

If you want to catalog your pics, take a look at Coppermine. But it does not seem you want to stop at that.

You can use SugarCRM to manage customer information. You can use one of the fields under SugarCRM to identify the filename of the contract for a particular customer.

You could use some one else's scripts,

or you can jump into mysql,

First I'm no expert and I'm sure there is a better way to do this. I would use apache, php and mysql and a plug-in like;
http://www.babykatiemedia.com/slim.php
Then I could run apache and use a browser to access the information and mysql to store it.
you could install xammp
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html
Then just go to the default location;
http://localhost with a browser and you would have your own little site. If wouldn't need to be viewed from the web, if its just for you, or people on your network.

Once you have mysql up and running,
You can also look at mysqlclient graphical client.

Just use the one that came with redhat.
It may already be installed;
http://docs.moodle.org/en/Step_by_St...at#Setup_MySQL
If that doesn't help we can start it from the command line as root
/etc/init.d/mysqld start

Just FYI, RH9 is a very old release and has not had any updates (especially security updates) for sometime.
I would seriously recommend upgrading to RH Fedora Core 4 (or V5 is due soon).
