Re: Online order processing
First, you need to determine what exactly you want the system to do. I'm guessing that you want to be able to input products and send the order to a credit card processor.
In order to do this, you'll need to create a database. Inside that database, you will need to create one table that lists products and prices, another for user authentication, and a third to list individual orders and the customers who placed them.
After the database is organized, create the PHP code that interfaces between the user's browser and the back-end database. I would highly recommend reading PHP.net's MySQL function list, available as a Related Link below this text.
Finally, you will need to create code that will interface with your credit card processor. This could be as simple as a custom PayPal link, or could involve interfacing directly with a credit card acceptor.
