Creating the data source

The data source is the combination of the database file and the path to it. Regardless of the database software used, it only accepts data in an expected format. For example, if you're collecting and transferring the student's name, password, and score, then your database file needs to have a table with a matching set of fields to store that information. A path to the database file, with read and write access, needs to be available to the web server.

Consult the documentation for your database software to learn how data sources are defined and accessed.
