PHP tutorials on e-commerce websites - help needed!
Good Evening to everybody!
I am a student and learning php, we have been given an assignment to create a very basic e-commerce website. Which does the basics like:
Add to basket,
Remove from basket,
Log In user, Log Out user,
We will be learning databases and mysql soon, i have done some research and have landed nowhere.. can somebody direct me to a good php e-commerce tutorial website? or maybe to a tutorial that does atleast some of the above points ive mentioned.
I do not want any php tutorials, im after tutorials based on e-commerce or some of the points ive mentioned above. My deadline isnt very, its due in a months time and were all going !
For the login/logout part your should research Apache Sessions, thats the most popular method to quickly get accounts and loggins working. You could use the session data storage area in your cart/basket too.
As for e-commerce tutorials, I think you'd be better reading some generic PHP/SQL tutorials and getting to grip with the basics.
Theres nothing much different from a shopping card and a message board, both are dynamic database driven web apps.
Since this is just an assignment -- you should use the technologies that are part of the requirements as this is not a project that you intend to launch, just a way to teach you the flow of information required for a shopping cart website, and teach you about Internet programming basics (handling sessions, user accounts, login/logout, cookies, database interaction and workflow).
After your course on databases, things should start making more sense
