In this video series, I’ll show you how to connect an iPhone app to MySQL. We’ll go through it step by step starting from the beginning.

You’ll learn how to:
– Sign up for web hosting
– Create a new MySQL database
– Set up a MySQL database user
– Set access permission for that user
– Create a PHP web service to access the data
– Create an iOS app with a tableview, multiple screens and a map
– Access the PHP web service via the app to download the data from your MySQL database.
