Here is my situation. My family is really into digital photos. My mother has a hard drive packed full of photos, and as our family grows and spreads accross the country, we are looking for a way to better share and compile our photos.
I assumed that in order to accomplish this i would have to create a database of photos, setup a webserver for the database, and create a webpage where people can access, the database, upload and download photos from it.
I could be completely wrong here.
So here are some of my questions:
I took a class on MS Access, can that be used or would i be better off teaching myself MySQL?
Can i use apache (which i know nothing about) to host my own database? What options do i have here
I am a quick learner and i know some html already, i am willing to learn about whatever i need to know, if someone could just point me in the right direction.
Thanks for your time.
