I have a form which shows results if a proper roll number is entered… the results are fetched from http://results.vtu.ac.in and only the table is shown… now i want to add the data of the table to my database using php.
Is there a way to do it..?
for example if the roll number entered is 1rn10cs006
the page will show the results as Semester: 8 Result: FIRST CLASS WITH DISTINCTION
Subject External Internal Total Result
Advanced Computer Architectures (06CS81) 59 23 82 P
System Modeling and Simulation (06CS82) 55 22 77 P
Project Work (06CS85) 97 97 194 P
Information and Network Security (06CS835) 59 20 79 P
Seminar (06CS86) 0 49 49 P
Programming Languages (06CS846) 60 24 84 P
Total Marks: 565
Now i want the data from this table to be stored to my database so that if the same roll number would search again… the result should be shown from my database and not from results.vtu.ac.in…

First and foremost, make sure you have permission to do so.

Further, in many cases, if you are allowed to use such information, there will be a published API that makes it easier to access. You should definitely look into this possibility.April 10, 2014 at 1:41 am #167925punithramesh007Participant

If they will not give you permission to use the information, then you should not be using it.
I’m not saying that it is not possible.
I’m saying it would be wrong, and might be illegal.
Unless you can get written permission to copy the data (per the site’s TOS), I will not help you to do so.
Best of luck. Don’t get yourself into trouble. : )
