"In this last article of the series Setting Up An Internet Database, we will make real use of the MySQL/Apache/PHP-technique that we have learned and create a virtual customer system. We can then add detailed information about our (virtual) customers to a database, and then view this information on a web page. This will be similar to any real customer database you might want to add to your company's web site."

"To make this happen, there are four things we need to do. To begin with, we will create the MySQL table to hold our customers. Then, we will create the HTML form you will need to fill in to add a customer. Our third step involves writing the PHP script to process the data entered in the form and add it to the database. And in the end, we will create a PHP script that reads information from the customer database and shows the entries on a web page."
