What is a way for accessing a SQL database server?

Hi dear,

The Best way is via a PHP script.

For instance:

<? PHP
$myServername = "localhost";
$myUsername = "your_Username";
$myPassword = "your_password";
$myDB = "example";

//Connect to the database
$dbhandle = mssql_connect($myServername, $myUsername, $myPassword)
  Or die ("Couldn't connect to SQL Server on $myServer");

//Select a database to work with

//Assuming you have the following database
$selected = mssql_select_db($myDB, $dbhandle)
  Or die ("Couldn't open database $myDB");

//Declare the SQL statement that will query the database
$query = "SELECT id, name, year,make ";
$query .= "FROM cars ";
$query .= "WHERE name='Toyota'";

//Execute the SQL query and return records
$result = mssql_query($query);

$numRows = mssql_num_rows($result);
Echo "<h1>" . $numRows . " Row" . ($numRows == 1 ? "" : "s") . " Returned </h1>";

//Show or display the results
While ($row = mssql_fetch_array ($result))
{
  Echo "<Li>" . $row["id"] . $row["name"] . $row["year"] . "</li>";
}
//Close the connection
mssql_close($dbhandle);
?>

The alternative is using DNS 'Data Source Name'

<? PHP

//Connect to a DSN "myDSN"
$conn = odbc_connect ('myDSN','','');

If ($conn)
{
  //The SQL statement that will query the database
  $query = "select * from cars";
  //Perform the query
  $result=odbc_exec($conn, $query);

  Echo "<table border="1"><tr>";

  //Print field name
  $colName = odbc_num_fields($result);
  For ($j=1; $j<= $colName; $j++)
  { 
    Echo "<th>";
    Echo odbc_field_name ($result, $j );
    Echo "</th>";
  }

  //Fetch the data from the database
  While (odbc_fetch_row ($result))
  {
    Echo "<tr>";
    For ($i=1; $i<=odbc_num_fields ($result); $i++) 
    {
      Echo "<TD>";
      Echo odbc_result ($result, $i);
      Echo "</TD>";
    }
    Echo "</tr>";
  }

  Echo "</td> </tr>";
  Echo "</table >";

  //Close the connection
  odbc_close ($conn);
}
Else echo "No connection";
?>

Hope it is helpful. Let me know your progress.

Thanks.

Here are some of the possible ways of optimizing database access in an SQL server. If you use the TSQL code in your application, transfer it into the database server. Transferring SQL from the application to the server and then applying them by means of views, triggers, stored procedures, or functions will help you remove any duplicate SQL. This also guarantees re-usability of the TSQL codes. Applying all TSQL codes via database objects will help you easily examine TSQL codes.

This will then let you search for ineffective codes that cause slow performance. It also lets you handle TSQL codes from a central point. It would also be a great advantage to re-factor your TSQL codes to use some of the advanced indexing techniques.
