Hi Joe!

I'm going from complete memory as it has been a couple of weeks since I veiwed it.....

Complete novice talking here....I remember it got me to display data on a recordset page but I had no idea at the time how to move the data forward to a details page. I felt as though it just kind of dropped me there. It is sort of missing the connection between the recordset and the add to cart function in my opinion. I am a complete begginer and I am sure that some of the info you guys think is just common knowledge is unknown to me and because most of the terminology is greek to me, I need to have all the dots connected.

Further it helped me to publish the database locally but I still don't know how to physically get the database to my remote site. My pages on my local server work great, but when I try to see my pages remotely I get this error...

Warning: mysql_pconnect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/usr/local/mysql-5.0/data/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/M/o/n/Montana4/html/industrygreetings/Connections/connIG.php on line 9

Fatal error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/usr/local/mysql-5.0/data/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/M/o/n/Montana4/html/industrygreetings/Connections/connIG.php on line 9

I assume that is some sort of error connecting to my database...??? I am guessing it is because my database hasn't made it to my remote server??? I don't know, and if it is the case I'm not sure how to get it there.

Sorry for all the rookie stuff, that was just my experience with it.

So, I felt as though it didn't help me to TOTALLY complete the process of building and deploying my database.

What IS important is that it does provide a ton of info for the money and delivers it quickly. AND these forums and the WA support have become world class. You just don't get support like this anymore....for anything!

Thanks for all and I hope my feedback has some sort of value.
