Thank you Jimmy!

I will keep with your advise.

Since this is my first time working with Apache/PHP and MySql, it is very hard in the beginning how everything is put together.

Hopefully by learning can I help myself and others on the WebAssist forums.

I wanted to double ck my work and see how things are put together, I found an Adobe link to a great article. Hopefully this will help others if they follow this thread.


This tutorial will help you understand what is going on. It took me 3 tries to figure it out. You mess up one thing and that's it.

The biggest problem was the localhost. Yes, I changed it to 8080 and it should work, but it would end up with a ODBC error. I inhibited the IIS which I should have done long ago and follow the above link. I got the database to work and now by doing that, I understand how the php links up.

So yes Jimmy, I don't have to mess with the ODBC.

So, if you download the WebAssist the Database Starter Kit for PHP, make sure you do the link above to teach you the ropes.
