That's it. Point your URL to guestbook.html and you can enter a few test entries. Go back to your phpmyadmin or other database manager and delete the test entries.
NOTE: There is a flaw in the guestbook that becomes apparent once new entries are entered after others have been deleted. Sometimes the order of the entries gets mixed up because the new entries are placed in the spots where deleted entries used to be. It is possible to fix this problem by altering the PHP code but I wanted to keep everything simple and easier to learn from.
SECURITY NOTE: It is very important that you protect the folder where you have uploaded include.inc. If you don't, someone may get acquire access to your database and cause all kinds of problems for you. Check with your host/control panel about how to password protect a folder.
Let me know if you find this useful and please send a link if you use this guestbook on-line somewhere.
If you have any questions, please post them on the forum at INDIVISION. Good luck and I hope this helps.
