I have a problem regarding PHP/MySQL. I've been learning PHP, along with HTML/CSS/jQuery (jQuery just started), for a month now, without any prior programming/markup experience, so be soft here. :P
Anyways, I've come across a problem I can't solve and I'd be grateful if someone here can solve it for me. I have a leaning more towards the front-end development, so I kinda suck at PHP (haven't really done anything in more than a week), but I would like to know the basics at least. Hope someone answers, thank you in advance.
Let's say we have a database called 'store', a table called 'movies' and a table called 'reservations'. I need to create a .php page with movie titles (let's say the column is named 'movienames') sorted alphabetically, for example:
American History X
I should create a link on every title that leads to another page we can call 'reservations.php'. There, we should list the schedule of reservations for a certain movie. Obviously, there should be a primary key ('movienames') from movies in 'reservations' as a secondary key. We should also have a date column, let's call it 'resDate' and one more secondary key from another table (video store users for example) we can call 'users'. We should format it like this:
That's basically it, I should also have a link on 'reservations.php' that leads to the main page we can call 'index.php'.
P.S. I'm sure it's an easy task for you, but I'm really awful at PHP and I neglect it whenever I can.

Are you looking for help to create it yourself? or someone to make it for you?
If you want someone else to do it for you, you should ask in the "Hire a programmer" forum.
If you want to learn how to do it, we need to know which kind/level of help you need.
e.g. do you need help to know how to:
- create a database?
- make the connection from PHP to the database?
- get specific data
I suggest you try to search for tutorials explaining how to use the PDO and/or mysqli connection (notice the i at the end of mysqli).

you can fire a query as follows from your table names:
ORDER BY name ASC
This way you'll need to match your table/column names.
and then link the listed movies.
Hope this helps.
