Alright let me try and explain this the best I can for you.
CMS-(Content Management System):
There are a few ways to update your website dynamically, meaning add/insert/delete data from your website without opening the source files. So let’s say you have a news feed. The news feed loads into your flash page on your website. There are a couple of ways to update that data without opening flash.
All you have to do is make a CMS, web based database editor. make a small app that allows you to control the data in your database.
1.XML - I’m not wild over XML, mostly because I’m not that good with it, and I find other ways much more effective.
2.PHP/mySQL(my personal new favorite) - mySQL is of course a database. Database don’t physically store files. The store data. Data can be path’s to images, text for your news, anything you want. PHP is a server side language(which you already know). PHP communticates with your mySQLdatabase, passing and receive data which can thus be passed along to flash.
3.ASP/MSAccess - Another option, although since learning PHP I don;t think I would use ASP unless I have to. But you can do the same thing in ASP as you could in PHP. And MSAccess is GUI, meaning you can phyically open it, as mySQL is not(although you can use phpMyAdmin).
I’d suggest trying out ASP or PHP I think ASP is probably harder to learn, but MSAccess is really simple.
So what you have to do…
Simple just be able to edit the data in your database from a web page. Search around the forums, for examples.
You can use dreamweaver to do this, I wrote a tutorial here
That uses ASP/MSAccess/Dreamweaver. Give it a read maybe it will help.
