First, I’m trying to store the `url` and `title` into a database from my “Read” section. I’ve created a database, database user and set a table with the name `read` with 2 columns (one for url and the other for link). This is where I’m stuck. I’m not exactly sure what I should put inside some of the options shown below.
Or should my PHP be setting this information from the array?
Also, I hope I’m not exposing any sensitive information here. Please let me know if I am.
I’m not sure why I should set an ID? What’s supposed to go there?
No, the only “user” would be me. I add what I read to my readability account and pull that data from the RSS feed.
I’m just trying to store that data in case I decide to do something with it later. Something like show what all I’ve read throughout the year. As for now, I’m just going to be outputting my latest article that I’ve read.
ID is your table index, every table should have it.
This number keeps track how many different unique entries you have. It starts at 1 and with every entry it auto increments. In the example you have how would you display ascending or descending data? You would only be able to sort it by url or title.
I would, so if you wanted to add extra info about the user down the road that data will be abstracted. Since you are the only user just pass 1 to user_id. or if you want to keep it real simple just add id (index, auto increment) to the read table.
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `read` (
`id` tinyint(8) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`title` varchar(250) NOT NULL,
`url` varchar(250) NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=1 ;
