First let me say iím developing this site purely for fun and learning in my spare time, I do not want to be purchasing expensive software or hardware whilst much of what Iím doing remains an uncertainty.
What i basically want is to be able to test, tinker and run the (game/site) from home in a browser, no servers or internet involved.
Q) After reading around about languages, apps and software that people have used for similar projects the sheer amount and variation in recommendations has me a little overwhelmed. Hopefully youíll be able to provide some clarification and offer a definitive set of programs/software/languages i should be using. I'm specifically intrested in what i'll need to create user accounts, loginís, storage, access and change of player character stats, etc. So, database stuff.
Hereís what I have and plan to use right now.
Iím writing my pages in text, pure html, no software (Dreamweaver, etc) and donít plan to in the future. (Same for CSS)
I have SQL server set up to provide me with a local server on my computer simply to test everything Iím going to be doing.
Now, itís with the database side of things that has me all confused. Especially MySQL, there seems to be multiple downloads of various apps and software available all doing very different things.
