View Full Version : Need An Opinion On How/Why This Was Done

Hi all,

I have ben lumped with a site which has a MySQL database on the backend. User's can sign up and view there details and all that, they can edit there information... This is all done in PHP pages. There is also a maintenance side to the site where the owners can login and see all the users, download information, email certain users... This is all in ASPX pages... To me that's strange... Is this common practice? Or would it mean it's been passed onto other programmers who felt aspx was better? Just an opinion would be awsome! I am familiar with PHP but am now a little freaked out as have no ASPX expereince... And the ASPX pages are the ones which need to be edited... Are they similar?

P.S. I have been able to login to the MySQL DB using PHP MyAdmin, does this mean I wouldn't be seeing any ASPX info? Would the clients login be on another DB somewhere?

probably one designer preferred asp over php or vice-versa. it doesn't matter the front end language you use to interface with the database.
