  • Administrator can add records.

Of course you can be the administrator. You can add record to the database online so that you add to the database URL /admin, for example, if the url of the database is www.mysites.com/db/members so add /admin to the end (www.mysites.com/db/members/admin). You must be online of course. You need enter the administrator’s password to be able manage the online database.(see 9.). Then you can add, modify or delete records in the database. The database will be actualized immediately so the visitors of the sites can see updated database every time..
