I want to start practicing building an online database with a website. I bought a book on php and mySQL to get me started, though for mySQL I need a practice server (which I would need to pay for). Is there anyway maybe I can make a database (mySQL or access) at home and just practice? (just try some simple things) can I link an accessa database to something online?
Any other recommendations are really appreciated cuz I want to learn as much as I can and build professional sites.
