i thought about making a web app - i am actually developing one for where i work - php/mysql .. hosted on my pc. The problem is the domain name thing - when my coleagues go into it they have to type in my IP address instead of something more favorable such as 'admin'

so do you reckon it would be best to go with mysql - and have all the different machines query mysql on the master system, or to have all the different machines send the master system some data, maybe an SQL statement, then the master machine queries a database, such as sqlite

Assuming that your PC on the network always has the same IP you should be able to get around it by creating a bookmark for that page. Alternatively you could set yup a local DNS but I haven't done this before. Still, worth looking into .
Anyway, I would go with MySQL since SQLite was designed more with embedded systems in mind, and isn't particularly secure (the file can be read by anyone SQLite.)
