Datenbankgestützte Internetpräsenzen: Entwicklung und Realisation am Beispiel der Homepage des Forschungsinstituts Freie Berufe (FFB) der Universität Lüneburg

Research output: Working paperWorking papers


The concept of a database driven website strictly separates between the design and layout of a webpage from the content itself. While the layout as well as the programming of scripts is done conventionally with html-editors and graphic-suites and is saved in single files, the content is saved separately in a central database. Instead of editing hundreds of html-pages, a single template is created for a certain form of information. The content will be copied automatically into these templates if a user requests the needed information. One of the most important advantages of a database driven website is the possibility to use management-systems to maintain the content stored in the database, without requesting any html-programming-skills of the users of such a system. This way opens new possibilities to keep the content up to date easily and instantly. This documentation describes the theoretical basics on which a database driven website is built as well as their implementation using the programming language PHP 4.0 and the database server MySQL. An additional chap-ter describes the maintenance of contents using a management-system. All this is illustrated using the Homepage of the Research Institute on Professions (FFB) of the University of Lüneburg as an example.
