web based database
Posted on 2009-03-30
I have a customer who is wanting a database to be accessible over the web on her website. While I am decent at web sites, and familiar with databases, I haven't put the two together before.
She has someone who could build the database if necessary. I've seen other databases that have been done for them, and they're kinda a mess.
Is it much harder to deal with a database that hasn't been designed for web access (for instance when dealing with permissions, etc.?) Assuming, of course the database has been constructed correctly? (I know that a poorly constructed one will cause problems).
Any suggestions? I've got a meeting this afternoon, and need to know the pros and cons of building the database myself.
