After many years of hosting a website on Windows Server with several Access DB's delivering cooking information via dropdown lists, I'm moving all to a Linux-Centos 6.6 VPS. They were created using Front Page but I didn't use FP Extensions just .asp. As an example see one that I need advice on--- http://www.cooksaurus.com/foodnews.asp
I know how to and have converted most the databases to MySql. I'm on a localhost test machine at the moment until all is working to my satisfaction. So with the referenced page, I'm basically trying to recreate it using PHP and HTML and have already created a page that creates a dropdown list using php and calling data from the MySql db and it works fine. Here is my humble coding, BTW I'm a chef with some novice coding knowledge.
mysql_connect($hostname,$username,$password) Or die ("Unable to connect the dbase");
$query="select * from $usertable";
<h1> Dropdown List of Newspapers</h1>
<option> Select Newspaper!</option>
But now I can't figure out how to "Click" on a city's newspaper and display its hyperlink to the Food Sections website using php? (I'm trying to duplicate what already exists on the Windows .asp page with a submit button or by simply clicking on an entry and when selected a clickable hyperlink to its corresponding web page.
Any suggestions, examples of what to do or references to how to make this work would be gratefully accepted.
