My toatal plan like following

Mysql(Database)===>Apache====>DNS(Intranet)=====>Webbrowser(IE, Netscape etc)

Hi rana28,

Yes this is possible, you could easly create a web interface like that with a language of your choice
PHP,or any CGI implementation using Perl,C,Java,Bash

but i advise you to use PHP which has a lot of MySQL built in functions and is verry well documentated
and therefore easy to learn



Best regards,
