    Database driven webpage

    Hi,
    We have a new eLearning Zone which has 64 machines in it and is for use buy individuals or whole classes providing they have booked. At the moment we use a paper based solution to show who has booked what and when but obviously this is a bit like the dark ages so i was wondering if it is possible to create a webpage that displays the contents of database to show who is booked booked into each of the machines. Any help is appreciated as i dont know where to start. I wouldnt even know how to set out the database properly ops: - access is not my strong point.

    Cheers

    Dan

    You could just use an off-the shelf solution like Oarbs:

    http://www.oarbs.com/

    If you still want to do your own thing then just set up a basic DB with a table listing your available resources, a table listing fixed bookings and a table for recording bookings made via your system. Then just code up a couple of ASP or PHP pages which interrogate this DB and display current availability in a table with links to a booking form for available slots. You can use Integrated Windows Authentication if running IIS on an Intranet for identification of usernames.

    Search here for room booking systems, but set up machines instead of rooms.
