Remember when I thought it would be easy to get something out of an SQLite3 data base and put it on a screen with a web server? I don’t care how old I get, I’m still way too naive. This turned out to be a royal pain in the bottom. It started out when I went looking for a language to do it in. Since I haven’t ever used php, I decided to try it out. It took me almost three hours of research to figure out what I needed to do to get it to work with the web server, and then another couple of hours to get php to work with SQLite3. Yes, there were examples on the web, most of them were incoherent, and most of the rest of them were wrong.
