For my page, I need to get a number from a db.
I then need to place the number in the page.
I then need to update the db to add 1 to the db field, so the next time I retrieve a number from the db, it will be incremented.
Questions: how do I set up the db from which I can retrieve the number?
Once the db is set up, is there anything special about the php coding I will use?
Do I use a plugin for the php coding?
If so, which plugin?
