I did not get access to any database system on the ISP's end.
I could get access to MySQL for $$$.
Initially I just want to test everything works with storing to simple text 
After that has happenned.
And if the requirement grows.
Then spending $$$ is feasable.

As I said I am just a novice.
So I want to get something small going.

Kind Regards,
