database integration


Recommended Posts

I have an existing mySQL database on my server with about 1.6 million items in it. I have an index page where my customers can click links and look through my distributors on-line catalogs and then just enter the part numbers they want. A script then searches the database and returns their price. I have an "add to cart" button which I want to add the items to the cart and a "view cart" button that I want to show the cart contents. Can I use this? I was told by someone that I would have to maintain 2 databases. One would be my existing database and one would be the store database and that I would have to have a script that would update the store database everytime I added items to my database. It seems to me that there is a script action when you hit "add to cart" and that I just need my button to call this script. Any advice?
