php project

Posted 28 March 2015 - 08:10 AM

I decided to do a php project, i am gonna try my luck at it and see what happens. The questions below are what i wanna answer.

purpose of the application?
What input is expected of the user?
What screens will the user see when inputting their data?
What processing will be performed on the information submitted by the user?
How will this information be stored?
How will the user be informed of the results of the data processing?


I also want to meet the following requirements

Input must be accepted from the end user.

Invalid input must be recognized and properly handled, with the user being informed of any problems.

The input must be processed and stored (in a database).

Results of processing must be displayed to the end user (through the website or through email if processing is asynchronous.)

It must include all necessary SQL statements, PHP code, HTML, and images to execute within the XAMPP environment.

It must have a professional and aesthetic appearance.

must be secure and safe from attack.



Any help with this would be great, i hope i can get the help i need for this. If i can get this done, i may go and have someone teach me more php

Aren't those questions what you are supposed to answer when you have your project?

As I have mentioned previously to you, learn the language BEFORE you create something. Even a project list will not help you at this point, because you have know clue how to approach or start a project, as demonstrated.

  • Learn Language by following several tutorials and / or reading books on subject.
  • Practice what has been gone over to ingrain it (actually learn by doing)
  • Understand fundamentals of programming
  • Start creating small projects on your own that reinforce what you have learned.
  • Learn how to effectively debug a problem.


This doesn't work when you want to create a project and don't understand why a variable is not defined in a 20 line script.


Judging by some of those requirements, this is homework and you appeared to skip several weeks of assignments.

I don't have to know, but, you want idea's without work. There are unknown amounts of threads regarding projects to do.

And that conclusion is generally correct. It comes from a poster not actually knowing what they are asking for, yet they have very specific questions. And this statement,

Is straight from an assignment, whether it is through your instructor or not. Educated guesses may be guesses, but if you see the same type of question long enough you can read between the lines.

The project that you have outlined is for someone who already has a good understanding of PHP. No "idea" that anyone suggests here can get you over the hurdle that you haven't studied PHP.

As has already been suggested, you need to study the fundamentals of the language, and more, before you can come back to this project.

Not that its important to tell you, but it isnt from an instructor or anything else. I been using html and ran into some php. I figure i could do something php related to help me learn easier. People learn differently from others or did you not know that? Your right it does sound like homework, but not everyone comes to these forums with homework

Fair enough. Let me warn you though. PHP is not related to HTML in any way. If the goal is that you will learn more HTML by learning PHP, you will find it harder. The basic rule is HTML, CSS, Javascript; That takes care of client side. Then, you branch into server side and tackle PHP or the myriad of other server languages. One does not teach or explain the other.

Either way, you are jumping ahead and will end up lost more. But have at it.

If you're looking for a starting project, consider a photo gallery. Think about what you want to learn, and then which features you need to design in order to learn and use those things. If you want to learn about session handling, user registration and login, form processing, file uploads, databases, and image manipulation then all of those things can be part of a photo gallery.

No, please don't. 5.3 is no longer supported: http://php.net/eol.php

Go to 5.5 at least.

I'm terrible confused as to what help you expect. You post a bunch of guidelines, & then repeatedly state that you want to do it yourself.

So php 5.3 is no longer supported, picked the book up from a friend who started school for php last year (he never finished the first week). I figured this would be ok

You should validate supported versions from the software authors.
