I am trying to revive a site that went offline a while ago. I got the majotiry of the code via the wayback machine on www.archive.org
. The problem I am encountering is there is a Search function on this site that is cgi (and of coarse I cannot get hold of the cgi code not recreate it as I have no clue about CGI.). My thought is to revamp things using php/mysql, BUT I dont know enough to get to the end result I want/need.
Overview of the project. This site deals with identifyiing motherboards. There is a page that has several drop-down boxes to breakdown the search criteria, and when you hit search the (old cgi code) results are shown.
Search Start Page (with the dropdowns):
Full results page (actual results would be broken down via the selected criteria though):
The extent of my knowledge MySQL is installing MODS for phpBB.
So the problem is two-fold I want the page to work, but don't posess the knowledge of cgi scripting or the indepth knowleged of PHP/MySQL. I do some php coding and getting mediocre with it but nothing that touches a database other then these MODS for phpBB.
ANY help would be greatly appreciated...
