Case Study: Enhancing web services at the Department of Theology
The Department of Theology has an extensive and complex Web site which, by making use of many technologies, illustrates very well the main method of Web development used by many Web programmers in the University.
The key components are PHP scripts, which are used to manipulate data held in extensive MySQL databases. The databases are “hidden away” on the server, yet the webmaster can access these through a phpMyAdmin Web interface in order to make direct changes to the structure of his tables. In addition, new and updated MySQL database files can be uploaded directly from the webmaster's desktop by way of a secured FTP client.
