Creating & searching a database

design

#1

I was wondering if I could get some help in creating a database and then more help making a page for users to search it. Here is my situation: I have a LONG list of specific numbers. Users input their own numbers inside a textarea. If there is one or more matches between the user input and the list in the database, the matches are returned in another textarea. Would I need PHP for this?
First things first - can I get some help creating the database and adding the numbers?
For the record, I’ve never done anything with databases or PHP.

I recommend that you learn PHP and MySQL before attempting anything as complicated at this. There are some useful primers available at the wiki:

  1. PHP
  2. MySQL and PHP
  3. PHP Form Processing

It needs some programming knowledge to do that.

If you don’t have any programming knowledge, you got to learn some first.

If you have programming knowledge, the links provide above have enough info for you to start with PHP.
