    this my first simple script that i learnt
    step by step
    #1 Create database GuestBook
    in database GuestBook create table about guest
    Code:
    -> name varchar(40) null,
    -> location varchar(40) null,
    -> email varchar(40) null,
    -> url varchar(40) null,
    -> comments text null 
    
    #2 code
    create hi.php by notepad or any program that you can do
    Code:
    <? php
    echo "hi, guys." ;
    $var = date("H");
    if ($var <= 11)
    {
    echo "good morning";
    }
    elseif ($var > 11 and $var < 18)
    {
    echo "good afternoon";
    }
    else
    {
    echo "good evening";
    }
    ?> 
    
    then you execute connect database
    Code:
    <? php
    mysql_connect("localhost", "root","kkk") or
    die ("Could not connect to database");
    mysql_select_db("guestbook") or
    die ("Could not select database");
    ?> 
    
    save code in connectdb.php
    #3 create form to submit data
    create a form by HTML code ( you can do by yourself)
    and you can test on local host ( install xampp to run)

    Edit by jazzc: Please don't forget to add code tags, it makes everything more readable ;)
