Connecting to a MySQL database with C# and PHP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am creating a Windows Phone 8.1 app that I want to use along with a MySQL database to run SELECT queries to retrieve certain data. I've read that the best solution would be to use PHP. I know how to use PHP by itself to run database queries but I don't know where to start when using PHP and C# together to get the query results from a PHP script. Can anyone explain what I actually need to create, e.g. do I need a separate PHP file with the script to run the queries and connect to the database and if so how do I use that in the C# code to retrieve the query results?

  • Hi Joshoowahhh,

    Here is a sample:

    I'm not familiar with php but sounds like php page can accept some variable by GET/POST and also return some data, we can send our data from C# to php address by HTTPClient class and also receive the returned data.
