PHP-Text-DB API - A Text File Database System

Guest Author - Diane Cipollo

What do you do if you want to add database functionality to your website but your web host does not offer this feature? One of the very first projects I worked on as a programmer was a website that wanted a database for its membership data but their server did not have any type of database software. It was my job to find the best solution to this problem. The best answer for this particular website was a pseudo SQL system that could work with text files. I decided to use PHP-Text-DB API. So how does it work?

First you will use regular text files to store the membership information. These text files become the pseudo SQL database. Also you need to download PHP-Text-DB API and place these files in a folder on your website. These files are a group of PHP files that act as your database software. With them you can manipulate your database text files using SQL type statements such as Select, Insert and Update.

PHP-Text-DB API works best on small to medium websites. You can download it free from the author's website www.c-worker.ch. There you will also find a user manual and a support forum.
