Hi I am a newbie to PHP and Mysql. I want to integrate an sms gateway api with my database and site so that a one way sms is generated an send to the initiator when a change is made to the database. For example if the user made change to his/her profile, I want an sms to notify him/her of the change.
You would need to find a service for this.
There's a few way to go at it.
Google offers SMS Text Messaging you would need to find a PHP Class for that. its kind of a hack. but its free.
or use Twilio which charges about 2 cents per SMS and they provide an SDK for their API
