Help with databases needed.

Hello.
I am a beginner at PHP programming.
I need some help on working with MySQL databases. First of all, where
should the database exist? Some host perhaps?
More like, I need to have a database owned by a library, full of books,
and each book needs to have data for itself (like author and year..).
All this, I need to drain from a database and place it on some kind of
a table on the screen.
And of course, how to change the database then? If someone adds a book,
modifies it, or just delete it...or change one of the book's properties?
Thanks in advance.

    [blue]Yes. You can create your own host if you want to. Try apache, wich is good and free.[/blue]

    [blue]This is what PHP is for. Start learning, read some examples on PHP interfacing with MySQL[/blue]

    [blue]You have to write this to.
    There's a lot of good examples on www.php.net[/blue]

    Download xampp, it's a very good package of apache, php and mysql all in one...

    You can find it at: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html
