Connecting MySQL Server to Flash 8 (AS2)

Posted 12 April 2011 - 03:30 AM

I have a small database sitting on a MySQL 5.5 server and want to render the screens in Flash 8 professional. I have read a number of help pages about the RDBMSResolver but not all of them. Could someone give me a 1 to 2 paragraph plain English overview of how data moves both ways from the database to the screen fields and back again using AS2? Alternatively, if this isn't possible could you tell me this and save me a lot of time?

Thank you

Its not possible to directly communicate from Actionscript to MySQL. You have to use some intermediate language which can talk with MySQL like PHP, ASP etc. I would recommend going with PHP.

Hereis a tutorial to get you started.
