Hey Microsoft Community,
I have some questions about SQL servers and about creating databases. So I have a program in Visual Basic where you can make accounts (Username, E-Mail, and Password) and a currency called points. I need all of this info to be saved onto an online database that I can access and that I can edit. At first, I was thinking about storing everything onto an excel document on a private website but it didn't work. I work with Visual Basic 2010 Enterprise and I have the next questions:
1. How can I create my own database/SQL server at home (on a personal device such as my own pc, not on a website or someone's servers)
2. How can I make my program store the data automatically from the users and how to save them so they can be accessed for account login
3. How can I link the program to that database and how the program and I can access it and edit the data.
Please help me with this, I searched all over youtube and other tech sites and I couldn't find anything useful for my situation. Thanks and God bless y'all!
