Good day!
I upgrade my version of mysql from mysql 4.1.10 to mysql 5.0.15. Now I used phpmyadmin to access my database using XAMPP. Now, I need to create a report generation and I have no idea how I can do that. What are the requirements and configuration I need to do? Is it a free application like a crystal reports that I can download? Or should I create my own report generation using php?
I found codes for report generation and honestly I can’ understand the whole codes because I am a beginner in using php.

Thank you in advance

Just use SQL to generate reports from your database. If you need more advanced functionality, code it in PHP.
