creating forms within a website

Hi All,

Do you know of any programs/apps that I can create forms via a webpage that will allow me to store the info in a database (mysql)? Let me explain:

I'd like to be able to access a website and create forms (names, addresses, phone etc...) and click SAVE and have this info stored on a database server. I'd also like to be able to search the database via the website.

I have Dreamweaver MX; can it do this?

Sorry if my question is vague.

What you're talking about is the basis of web application programming, and the answer is a resounding yes. This is what PHP was designed for. Read up on PHP at

Feel free to contact me if you need any advice or tips.


P.S. And yes, Dreamweaver MX can be used to do everything you described, including work with PHP.
