Getting started writing an auction script

1 New Member
I'm new here.. I am hoping to get some Professional Advice.

I want to start my own online Auction. I anticipate it will grow into a high volume/high traffic online auction. I need some Recommendations as to what platform and what is the best configuration this Auction should be designed in to handle high volume(i.e. Php or ASP or CGI, Mysql)?

I've seen some other Auction scripts out there.. but I really don't know the best design for an Auction website that can handle high volume.. Security is very important as well..

Hope to get some good advice on this one.. Please Help.

I'm no professional,
to do what you want to do takes a lot of little steps that will eventually become a staircase. First thing I would do is decide on what scripting language I would use. Personally I like php. Then you would have to think of what data you would have to store i.e. user, password, items, etc. personally I would use mysql. now that that is figured out you would have to make a templating system for this auction website.
You can find tutorials on this. To compete with the big boys will take lots of advertising dollars. Security is another main issue. You would probably be better off buying a script, depending on how much your time is worth.

Anyone know where I can get tutorials, or find resources on creating php-based auction sites? There seem to be quite a few commercial versions, but nobody to explain the theory/how-it-works. :-( Tutorials, articles, anything?!?!

OK, here's my 2p worth: === Q. Why am I getting the error message 'Headers already sent'? A. PHP produces this error message when you try to set a header for a web page after you have already started sending out the content of the page. Web content is always delivered with a few headers at the top, ending with a blank line. For example, a web page might start like this:
