Problems starting with databases
Hi all, apologies in advance if this isnt the right forum to post this: it didn't quite seem to fit in the PHP or MySQL forums.
I've been asked to make a site that uses PHP with databases, and I use Windows XP. I have quite a small budget, so paying some £140 for MySQL didn't appeal to me, nor did the complex windows-unfriendly PostGreSQL system. I've been looking all over for a database system that is free (or at least relatively cheap) and PHP/Windows-friendly, and that is easy to download and install (sounds strange, but trying to download PostGreSQL was beyond me).
Can anyone give me any tips as to which programs they recommend and how they work?
Thanks a lot,
