I am very new to online databases and am looking for an instructional resource to help me create my first one.
I found a great article by Kevin from SitePoint (MySQL :: Building a Database-Driven Web Site Using PHP and MySQL), but it seems outdated b/c it refers to Windows NT and 2000. Not that these OS's are obsolete, but I am wondering if I should be getting more current instructions.
I am using WestHost and I'm not sure which OS (not in a position to check right now).

Kevin is the author of a book called "Build Your Own Database-Driven Website Using PHP & MySQL" which is in its 4th edition. I think the article that you link to is the article that was used as the basis for the 1st edition of his book.

Got it. Is this the forum's polite way of saying "no freebies?"

Cool, thanks. I'll read through it.
