Default Is it possible for html to write to database?


I've seen people doing contact form that allow visitor to ask or made contact with site owner using a html form. My question is, how the information is capture at back end, after a visitor hit the enter key?

Do you store those info entered into a database like sql or text file?

Is it possible to store those info straight into a plain text file in a folder using only html.

My level in web design is at doing static page in html only (very basic stuff).

You can write to an html file and flat text file or to a database. Both methods work. But in most instances, a text file will not be used for more serious scripts. Vista Help Forum runs on very comprehensive software and stores everything in a database file, as you'd expect from most professional software.
