Downloading/Uploading to the Internet

Recommended Posts

What's the easiest way of downloading files from a server (such as updates for a game)? And what is the easiest way of uploading files or sending information (such as high scores) to a server? I have no knowledge of MySQL or PHP, just C++. Thanks!

Well, you'll have to learn one type of language like that, unless you'd like to run a server application which the client will connect to. If so, just send it the information as packets. Otherwise, you can use PHP or some other web developement language and send queries (?).

I got the socket class from here: http://www.adp-gmbh.ch/win/misc/sockets.html and played around with it.
Then I researched and learned some PHP and MySQL and I think I got enough knowledge to implement an update system or high score system in a game.

Thanks for your help!
