Hello guys,

I need a help on this project.
I don't know if it is possible then I need some clues from all of you.

I have a database in internet (mysql) and I need to access this database. I intend to have a syncronized system between two computer far way. One of the computer will only send information to this database in my web and the other will download the information.

What is the best way to do that? Soap?

is it possible to send rows of register and to record in database? Do you know any site that I could have some examples?

I really thanks
Alexandre

You have different options for securely connecting to your web database

1.) direct connection via VPN
2.) via a web-service to pass-through requests and send back responses
2.) via a php script

On client side use Delphi component methods TIdHttp.Put or TidHttp.Post to send parameters.

Simply put your parameters in a TStringlist and do it somehow like that...

function PostParameters: string;
var
  MyParams: TStringList;
  idhttp: TIdHTTP;
begin
  MyParams := TStringList.Create;
  MyParams.Add('Param1=1');
  ...
  MyParams.Add('Param5=X');

  idhttp := TIdHTTP.Create(nil);
  try
    Result := idhhtp.Post('http://....', MyParams);
  finally
    MyParams.Free;
    idhttp.Free;
  end;
end;

Open in new window


On Server side use php script to handle your parameters and return result data, which you then can parse in your client Delphi app.

This is a good example for how to use Delphi to work with a php script...
