PHP and the backing store database are both orthogonal to WAP (which is
really HTTP, just a different content type). PHP can return pretty much
any type of content you want; i.e.
echo("<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC \"-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.1//EN\"
As for querying a database and formatting WAP out of it, there are many
examples on the Web. Google search "PHP MySQL". Many of the examples
return HTML-formatted data, but formatting it in WAP is easy too.
