I am new to JS and i would like to start playing around with JS and databases. First of all i think that the first step i should take is to install MySql (correct me if i am wrong).I have a second PC (which i am not using it) with the following system configuration (Intel Core Duo,2.4 Ghz,4 GB Ram), so i am thinking to install MySql there (as a little server).
the next step is to create a form in my HTML page which is going to communicate with my Database.
So my questions are the following: 1) Can i install MySql on the PC i mentioned before considering its configuration? If yes, what are the steps of doing that? (where can i download it and what is the best configuration for the Software to have?) 2) What is the simplest code i must use in order to succeed a connection?
