Final Prac
September 10, 2008 04:09PM
Good Day,

Want to start up my final prac and get it going...

Does anyone have any ideas on what a "Switchboard Interface" of links would be like?

Regards

Hi,

Just in case others are having difficulty finding the Final Prac doc to download, this link will take you to it.

Edited by Mac: Uh no.... The addres is in your welcoming letter, or email me if your dog ate it. I do not want it advertised here for various reasons smiling smiley

I guess everybody should be able to download the final prac.

You can find it on the homepage of this course under

Edited Mac:
Well Iris, these forums are in the open domain, i.e. anyone (including John Doe who lives in Karakatoa can access these forums. Therefore we protect the copyright of our course material (forced upon by Unisa, with right) by NOT publishing the course download web page on these forums. That is why we send out a welcoming letter with this information to students that have paid their course fees. The obvious route from here is to protect our download directory by logins and passwords. However, from our experience, this creates a huge amount of administration because people do not read their tut letters smiling smiley

Everything in flowing smoothly now including the practical, but just one question to Mac: How do I access the database of students on your webserver for this practical? The Tutorial Letter says: "We have created the “registration” database for a student system on our server for you, should you wish to make use of it." How do I access that database to populate the structure created by me in SQL?

Sorry for the delayed response - I was in bed with severe flue the last 4 days.

In the tut letter we provided you with an exact mirror (dump) of the structure of the database you must use (import - see a previous post on how to import). So you create your database in XAMPP using this structure. When you send the prac to us, we merely change the connection details

mysql_connect ("localhost", "our_login", "our_password"winking smiley

in your connection file (which you should include in all your pages- which allows us to change it in just one file) to fit our database connection details.

The sentence "We have created the “registration” database for a student system on our server for you, should you wish to make use of it" merely points to the fact that you can use this dump to import the structure, as opposed to creating it yourselves. I think I need to rephrase this.

You are using the dump to create the structure (database and tables). You develop your app and fill it with data (student, course info etc). When you send us your code, we make use of our database (which has the same structure as yours)l. We test you app by filling the database, through your app, with our own data.

Switchboard interface means the first page present links to all the pages.

999% of people do not have a problem installing XAMPP. However, a specific computer may have configurations in place which may cause some problems. The problem lies with the computer, and it is impossible to provide support on XAMPP when we don't know you configuration (i.e. not sitting in front of it). Which is why you should Google XAMPP to find solutions. Which is what we do to find solutions when you post problems with XAMPP. The only difference is we become a middleman which you may just as well bypass smiling smiley And you better get used to it - without Google you may just as well give upon PHP now smiling smiley
