Can I use salesforce to ...


Is it possible to use salesforce as a foundation for an online community? In other words, can I have non-salesforce users login to a PHP application that contacts the salesforce database and allows my users to  update their profile?

Thanks for any advice.

The short answer is 'yes'.  There is a PHP toolkit that allows you to interface with SFDC.  In the case you are talking about, you'd be using SFDC like an online database and relaying SOQL queries to it via the API.

Hope this helps.
