    How to read data from other website and save records in db?

    Hi,

    There is a website which provides the functionality of "Find People". I want to write a PHP program which allows me to save the results of that website into database.

    What is the way to do this in php?

    Make sure you have permission from that other website to used and catalog their data first.

    After that, you can use a screen scraper to extract data. Google the term.
