The web server I’m working on does not have MySQL. My company has a SQL server but they are being slow at setting up the DNS on the web server. Until they do no one can access the tables on the SQL server. Since I need a database now I have been given clearance to use an offsite MySQL database.
I created my forms and the data is stored to the database fine. Now I want create reports while staying within my companies website.
What I want to do is have the report form on the site, the user fills in the report request that is sent to a php file on the mysql database. The database send the results back to the user that is displayed to the user on the company website.
So, can I process the mysql on another server and send the results back all in a secure way so the results arent seen in the address bar. It may be important to note that the results could be quite long.
I added a graphic example of what i’m trying to do.
