Course 1 - Certificate in Intermediate PHP and MySQL Online Course

There are 12 units of study

Review the Basics of PHP and MySQL

In today's fast-paced world, it's almost crucial for every type of business to have an Internet presence. In this lesson, you'll peek at behind-the-scenes components of a commercial-quality Web store application. You'll see how to use the PHP programming language to create the Web store storefront page, complete with product catalog and customer ordering system. You'll discover how Web stores use the popular MySQL database server to maintain the store inventory and track customer orders.

Advanced PHP Programming

Because of the complexity of creating a Web store, we'll need to discuss some advanced topics in PHP programming. In this lesson, you'll create functions in your PHP programming code that you can use every time you need to perform a specific feature in your applications. We'll examine the PHP code required to manage and manipulate images within your Web site.

Advanced SQL Techniques

Complex Web applications often require complex database structures. Today, you'll explore some of the advanced features that the MySQL database server offers. You'll discover how to use the MySQL console to enter SQL commands, and build commands to create the application database objects. You'll manually create a database, user account, and all of the tables required for the application. You'll find out about some advanced features that you'll be using, such as creating foreign table key constraints and table views.

Create Back-End Applications

Every Web store has an administrative interface, which allows the store manager to create and manage the product catalog, as well as process customer orders. In this lesson, you'll dive into the Web store backend application, which allows the store manager to control the Web store environment. You'll examine how to force the store manager to log into the backend system, and how to restrict the system so only the logged-in manager can perform specific functions. You can use this basic backend template to create your own Web store management interfaces for other Web applications.

Create New Categories and Products

The most important feature in the Web store backend application is the ability to create the product catalog. In today's lesson, you'll learn how to incorporate images into your Web store application. You'll discover how to use the MySQL Binary Large Object (BLOB) data type to store images within the MySQL database. And you'll find out how to organize your product catalog by creating sections in the product catalog and assigning each product to a specific section.

Display Images

After having a store full of products, your store manager will need to know how to manipulate existing product information. In this lesson, you'll build the backend Web pages required to allow the store manager to modify information in existing product database records.

Create a Storefront Web Application

In this lesson, we'll turn our attention to the storefront application. The storefront lays out the basic format for the entire Web store, and gently guides customers to the correct location. You'll see how to best organize and present your products in the store without overwhelming your customers with information while providing them with an easy path to obtaining the information they're looking for.

Create and Use a Shopping Cart

Once you have your customer in your Web store, you'll want them to purchase something. In this lesson, you'll discover how to create a shopping cart for your customers. You'll learn how to allow customers to select products to place in their shopping carts, and how to display shopping cart information for them to view and modify.

Create a Checkout Web Page

After allowing customers to place products in their shopping carts, the next most important feature is to allow them to check out. You'll create registration pages, to allow your customers to register as returning customers to make future checkout sessions easier. You'll also find out how to take steps to ensure that the data your customers enter in the registration process is valid, and how to protect it from prying eyes.

Use MySQL Transactions

When a customer checks out and places an order, you must be able to process the data in your application. In this lesson, we'll walk through the PHP programming and MySQL database techniques required to perform this function. We'll also look at how to use database transactions to keep the information in your database tables synchronized so your data is accurate at all times.

Generate Reports

With the bulk of the Web store application finished, we'll turn our attention to a few of the finer details that'll make your Web store more professional. First, you'll learn advanced MySQL searching techniques to help your customers find just what they're looking for. Next, you'll find out how to generate reports directly from your Web store database for your store manager. You'll discover how to extract the data in your database and produce fancy spreadsheet reports that would make any manager envious.

Use Object-Oriented Programming Techniques

The PHP programming language allows you to incorporate object-oriented programming principles easily in your Web page code. In this lesson, we'll walk through the basic principles of object-oriented programming and how to use it in a Web environment. You'll learn how to incorporate the object-oriented database features in PHP in your Web applications. Finally, you'll create your own object-oriented programming classes to interact with your database table that you can use in any application.

Course 2 - Certificate in Introduction to PHP and MySQL Online Course

There are 12 units of study

What Is PHP?

These days, people expect the information on professional Web sites to change continually and to remain up to date—even up to the minute. In this lesson, you'll start learning how to produce dynamic Web pages that can do just that. We'll begin exploring the Web application we'll be building throughout the course—one that will result in a complete content management system that you can adapt for any future Web sites you create. You'll see how the PHP programming language presents dynamic data, and how the MySQL database server stores it. We'll also dive into the world of WAMP servers, the engine behind dynamic Web sites. Finally, you'll take a big (but easy) step forward by downloading and installing a WAMP server on your own computer. 

Basic PHP Programming

Discover how to incorporate PHP programming into your Web pages to dynamically produce content on your Web pages. You'll see how to store data in variables, and use mathematical operators on data to write programs that can manipulate and display content on your Web pages.

More PHP Programming Features

A key aspect of dynamic Web applications is the ability to process data and make decisions based on the data. We'll examine some PHP statements that allow you to alter the content in your Web pages based on data values in your PHP programs. You'll also learn some techniques for simplifying the programming process by using loops to handle multiple data elements, as well as how to include common code files in all your Web pages. 

Creating a MySQL Database

In this lesson we'll use the popular phpMyAdmin Web-based tool to create database objects. We'll first examine how data is organized in a database, then we'll create the actual database and tables necessary for the course project data. 

Creating a Dynamic Home Page

The core of the Recipe Center application is the Web page template. In this lesson we'll walk through the HTML and CSS code required to display the dynamic content that our PHP code will generate.

Displaying Database Content Dynamically

In this lesson we dig into the nuts and bolts of dynamic Web programming. We’ll use PHP code to retrieve data from MySQL tables and display it on the Recipe Center Web page. Now you can control what appears on the Web page simply by changing data in the database!

Allowing Visitors to Enter Data

Allowing visitors to post information dynamically is a great feature to add to your Web site. In this lesson you’ll see how to create HTML forms for entering data, then work on how to retrieve the data and insert it into the MySQL table using PHP code. This will make your Web site even more attractive to visitors! 

Implementing a Simple Search Engine

This lesson walks through the basics of implementing a simple search engine in your dynamic Web application. Providing the ability for visitors to quickly search and retrieve data stored in the database is a great feature to add to your site, and you'll see how to do that with just a few extra lines of PHP code and some SQL magic!

Producing Attractive Printer-friendly Pages

Despite the efforts of Web programming, the world hasn't quite gone paperless yet. Because of that, you'll need to provide a printer-friendly version of your Web application so visitors can print information. In this lesson you'll see two different ways to provide a printer-friendly way of displaying the dynamic content from the Recipe Center.

Controlling User Access

Restricting access to data on a Web site is a vital feature for many Web administrators. This lesson shows how to use PHP to control access either to an entire Web site, or to just specific features on the Web site. This lets you control who can update data on your site, helping to block comment spam often posted in blog sites.

Backing up and Restoring MySQL Data Files

Being able to restore data in a database is a crucial function in any dynamic Web site. This lesson demonstrates different methods of backing up and restoring data in the MySQL environment. You'll learn not only how recover data into an existing database, but also how to migrate data from one MySQL server to another.

Implementing Paging

All Web sites that provide access to lots of data implement some way to page through the data. In this lesson, we implement a paging algorithm that allows our site visitors to page through all of the data records in small chunks. This is one of those features you can add to help make your Web site look more professional.
