    Outputting external php into Silverstripe Link to this post

    I have a php script which goes to database created by SilverStripe, f.e.:

    dosearch.php:

    <?php
    // database info

    $query ="SELECT * FROM StaffPage WHERE `lastname` LIKE '$_POST[last_name]%'";

    $result = mysql_query($query) or die("Could not execute query");
    if (mysql_num_rows($result)==0 ) {print("Not found "); return;
    }

    while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
    echo $row[lastname].", ".$row[lfirstname];
    }
    ?>

    Now I want to put on some page form which is

    <form action='./dosearch.php'>
    <input type='text' name='last_name'>
    <input type='submit'>
    </form>


    I surely can do it via iframes but it has its drawbacks. What is the recommended approach? How to accommodate/modify such script

    Thank you in advance. Victor
