I'll start this off by saying I am a complete newbie. So if I ask stupid things, it's not intentionally so.
I'm looking to set up a DigiChat based online role-playing chat. I'm pretty solid on the one end (getting the license, and setting it up) but programming the MySQL databases required to store, modify and display characters is completely beyond me. I'm trying to get my feet wet, looking at it, but I am really intimidated.
Can anyone suggest places to start from, good practices to follow, or a sympathetic shrink to vent at when it breaks my brain?
Thanks so much in advance.
