Hi

I am a PHP ,MySQL newbie.Just finished learning the basics of PHP
programming and MySQL interaction.Can anyone suggest some project
topics that will help me gain hands-on experience in developing a PHP-
MySQL software?

What will be the right approach in developing a "PHP-MySQL" software?
i.e,which part to develop first and which to address next ?

TIA

I personally learnt php by choosing a project to make that I personally
wanted then tried to build it, you of course will need to break it down and
plan you are going to do it.

A simple user management system (add, search, edit and delete type of
thing).

Ok, well i learnined while i was needing to do things... with
websites... but iuf you wnat to really practice... well i suggest you
to do a complete sales site...:

Clients
++++ Bough products
++++ Recomended by (Another clients asked him/her to join)
++++ Most visited category

Products
++++ Basic product info
++++ sector and subsector
++++ Rankings
++++ relations with others

Admin
++++ Do's and dont's
+++ Some other crap

ofc... you will have to add the administrative interfaces, to add,
edit, delete, hide, unhide and so on... ;)

a suggestion... plan fine your app... then plan the database, and then
start coding post here or msg me if ya need halp...

BTW a sugestion... if you plan to do system that arent hosted by a
company like wehostyourwebsite.adomain.com but they're going for
intranet thingies... i REALLY sugest you to use POSTGRESQL, and not
only for you... but for others that also have experience with
systems... and sometimes would like to reduce some "sql" sentences
with stored procedures written in PL/PHP or PL/SQL or PL/PGSQL....
composite types...

if you love mysql... then you will love enven more postgresql when you
see its benefits...

PostgreSQL is good - but then so is MySQL. And MySQL is supported by
many more hosting companies, so if he ever goes to a hosted solution he
will have man more options.

There is nothing wrong with using MySQL - which, BTW, also has stored
procedures.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with PostgreSQL, either. But I can't
see how you can recommend one over the other from the information given
- unless you have a totally biased (and closed) attitude.

Hi,
The best way to learn I think, is to do a complete website (or a
general purpose CMS, but it's better if you really use it): you can
start by having only a basical content managment system (a own made
one) wich allow you to add pages, then you add hierarchy managment, a
downloads manager, etc.. If you do your own website the needs will
show off progressively and you will be "forced" to do things to make
it better.

What language? What purpose? I personally believe joining an
existing project would probably be the best route. For example,
learn some of the basics in an existing project, and perhaps help
out in such a project. An example might be to get involved with
the editor called Scintilla http://sourceforge.net/projects/scintilla/.
But that's more of a project in C++ but there's some really good
things you can do to help out there as far as the PHP side of
things goes.

They need some help in getting some .API files configured. A
few exist for the SQLite API at the following link...
http://www.microcosmotalk.com/tech/windows/php/sqlite/

Neil and Philipe are good folks and created perhaps the best
programmer's editor in the world and they work hard at it keeping
it free and available as open source.
