Chapter 2. Installation
In this chapter are detailed installation notes written.
phpMyEdit enables PHP scripters to quickly create forms used to interact with data
stored in a MySQL database table. The procedure described below will enable you
to generate the calling script containing the database
logon and a variety of options. An included file
phpMyEdit.class.php will later manipulate MySQL records
based on user options which are configurable in the calling script. The calling
script essentially generates one form which facilitates actions that include add
record, change record, copy record, view record, delete record, etc.
phpMyEdit is available for download from Platon.SK. Extract, or
unzip, the program files to your computer's hard disk. The download file
includes icons and various language files which should be extracted into
sub-folders below the file named phpMyEdit.class.php.
Before uploading the program files to your server, make certain that your FTP
client is not configured to force filenames to lower case letters.
With the program files uploaded to your server, point your web browser to the
file named phpMyEditSetup.php. You will be prompted to
enter your MySQL database logon (hostname, username, and password) and click the
Submit button. The logon screen should resemble the picture below.
