Updating a website using databases

Updates are immediately reflected on the website, and are also added to each user’s installed copy of the app the next time the app is launched (if the phone or tablet has an Internet connection at the time).

We’ve found this to be a flexible and powerful approach that gives app users the best of both worlds: access without requiring a net connection, and content that is updated when new information is available.

You can get the best of both worlds using the following approach: We’ve used this approach for an app called Tour the Finger Lakes, which provides curated tours of the Finger Lakes region of New York, based on the user’s starting point, interests, and desired trip length.

All the content is stored in a database on a Webvanta site, and a subset of the information is available as part of the Tour the Finger Lakes site.

Adminer is available for My SQL, Maria DB, Postgre SQL, SQLite, MS SQL, Oracle, Firebird, Simple DB, Elasticsearch and Mongo DB.

Replace php My Admin with Adminer and you will get a tidier user interface, better support for My SQL features, higher performance and more security.

At the same time, you’d like the data to be updated whenever new data is available, and you don’t want users to have to update the app just to get new data. Screencast about Adminer features and using plugins (, by Igor Hlina) Security is #1 priority in development of Adminer.All Word Press installations added using the Word Press Toolkit or through the Applications page appear in the Word Press Toolkit automatically; those installed manually need to be attached to the Word Press Toolkit.When the user installs the app (for i Phone or i Pad) from the App Store, it includes all the data that was current as of when that version of the app was created.Each time the app starts, it checks for updates and merges them in with the stored data.
