    PHP flat file database script

    I've no idea if such a thing exists, but here's what I want to be able to do;

    1 - Create ad-hoc databases on-line (simple lists would be a start)

    2 - It should be possible to update the lists on-line

    3 - It should be possible to simple queries against the lists on-line

    4 - It should be possible to download individual lists as CSV/XML

    5 - There needs to be user authentication to limit access

    6 - Data should be stored on-line as simple text files, NOT using MySql (my superbasic web host only gives me one MySql DB and it's tiny!)

    Does such a thing exist or should I get out the 'PHP for dummies' and start learning?

    Cheers,

    This webhost of yours is a royal pain AJ! what's the restriction on that DB? I've successfully run several in a small space.

    Re: PHP flat file database script

    Try this site..

    http://php.resourceindex.com/Complet..._Manipulation/

    There's probably less need for a flatfile text DB system as most webhosts actually nix' them as resource hoggers but there's bound to be some script code for it somewhere..

    If this is a host being cr*p thing let me know AJ as I can help with an account on my own space..

    Thanks Mark, that looks interesting. I'm on the ultra basic low cost home host package which, now I look, doesn't include any form of SQL database. I can have Access via ODBC

    I may now have an alternate host for the service I'm trying to set up, which should remove all the limitations I've been struggling with!
