View Full Version : help needed with basic php/asp page

10-18-2004, 07:24 AM

my background is html. i was given a project to do with something similar to this
http://www.efonica.com/intl/eng/rates.asp ('http://www.efonica.com/intl/eng/rates.asp')
http://www.livewire.cc/LowRates.php ('http://www.livewire.cc/LowRates.php')

users can select the countries to call and upon clicking submit; they get to know the phone rate. However, The pricing plans would be different for my webpage.

i copied and paste the source script from the website and pasted nto dreamweaver but when i click submit, it leads to an empty page. any ideas how does asp or php work?

Thanks in advance

You need a database back end where your asp or php script can pull the information from.
PHP and ASP are basically scripts that run on the server. Your script will basically say "user wants rates for India, go to database and look up rate, then create page with rate on it for user".
Besides knowing PHP and/or ASP you also need to know how to create a database
and how to tell your script to find the information in the database.

You could also use javascript arrays to get similar effect! read a bit about arrays ('http://www.google.com/search?q=javascript+arrays&sourceid=mozilla-search&start=0&start=0&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official')
