Solved feedback browser to server

February 19, 2014 at 01:34:46
Specs: RedHat 6 , x86
Suppose I have some simple HTML pages that display information that come from a server run script producing HTML, then using a webserver on the same server to have that page displayed on any user's display on request (next to regular usage of the application itself).

That's all good, but ..
It would be so interesting that a user could redirect something from the browser to the server itself. I'm thinking of this in a way to trigger something on the server.

I realise HTML is not very suited for that, but with very limited browser programming skills, what are the options ? It must not be very user friendly (also for security purposes), it should just work.

Any advice ?

Thanks

That's exactly what ASP, JSP, and similar scripting languages allow. Even straightforward HTML allow this via Forms. Or you can use something like Java or C# for more complicated situations.

The webserver is Apache, so ASP is almost ruled out I guess.

I like the Forms HTML option, but it seems to focus on the information gathering part, but then I don't see how to get the data to files on the server. The essential part of the question is that the server should get some info from the client, not just some data processing in a browser ..

Isn't PHP an option as well ? I have no clue how difficult these are to get going from scratch. Something as easy as HTML would be very nice ;)

✔ Best Answer
PHP is certainly a possibility, and probably easier to learn than ASP. It can write data received from the client to a file. Typically you would store and retrieve data in a database, but you could use ordinary files.
