Connecting to Website

hompol posted 5 years ago in Creating a connection
Hello, I was wondering is there a way to make a website connect to HeidiSQL? I am currently running a WoW Private server and each time some one new comes i need to create an account for them in HediSQL.
BUT What i was thinking was that there might be a way to make a website then let the website connect to HeidiSQL. So when my friend types in Username and pass and all that it connects to HeidiSQL and lets it create a new account in the DB.
Please help! Thank you!

Misunderstanding in place here. HeidiSQL is a client, you cannot connect to HeidiSQL, but you connect to a MySQL server, using HeidiSQL or a website. That is surely possible. Probably only the wrong forum to start for in that topic. If you're really serious I recommend making yourself familiar with PHP and MySQL.

Yes, but is it possible to let a website edit the content of my database?
If so, How?

Sure, that's what I meant - you have to use a script interpreter like PHP which can
a) run on a webserver and parse your PHP script
b) output HTML of your website and
c) read and write to/from your database.

Lovely, is that easy to set up? If so do you know any free web host, like a blog or something that lets me do that? Just to see how it is.

I don't recommend to use a free hoster, but if you like ads on your page why not: http://www.google.de/search?q=free+php+web+hosting

thanks, im not really into free webhosting my self, i just want to check it out first before i get into it. I found a free webhost (Leadhost.com) that gives me the ablility to use PHP and MySQL. Tho i dont really know how or what to do.

So how do i do it?

Would be nice if you could dive into your topic a little deeper to be able to ask more exact questions. Just go and google for PHP please.

Once again, is there just a simple way to make it able for people to create and account on a website and when they do that it edits some files in HeidiSQL?

PHP is easy to learn but if you're not a programmer at all that will at least take you several weeks to get started.

Once again:

a) You cannot edit files in HeidiSQL. Instead you edit database structure and content.

b) You cannot edit anything in HeidiSQL by calling a webpage. Instead, you edit a MySQL database and its content. That's an important difference, please don't mix that up, or noone will be able to follow you.

c) You may notice that this topic doesn't help you at all, right? That's because your questions are too general, and - to be honest - they look like you're just too lazy to dive into the whole stuff, just wanting the 1-minute-trick to achieve your goal, which does not exist here. I don't know if you're really too lazy to get started, but if you are, don't ask me for any help.

So, believe me, there is no other way than learning PHP or another script language to achieve database editing. Secondly you need some hoster which may be the easier task. Now, just start over by reading some random PHP / MySQL tutorial or - if you prefer a video for gods sake watch them.

I hope this makes clear that another "Isn't there an easier way?" is totally superflous. :)
