Right now I have a script written in vbscript/autoit that is run on each of our supported machines. When I setup the machine I run the script and fill out the customers information. It also pulls information about the machine such as serial number, model, IP, etc. I then write this data to a csv file and moved to our network share. This has been fine, but the data is really not usable in this form so I was hoping to get the data into a database.
My question is how can I use PHP to get that same info into a MYSQL database? PHP cannot grab things like model, serial number, registry info and other things like that correct? Can I pop a browser, have it read a text file and populate text fields with the info. I would then submit the data through the browser and it would add the entry to the database. Any input on this would truly be appreciated. Thanks.
