    I am working on creating a database website that will show high res scans of primary historical documents of an important figure in my community. We are using PHP and MySQL as code and need some help on how to get started. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get started or where there is some prewritten code for this type of thing? I would appreciate it very much if some folks could point us in the right direction, or if someone knows where some open source code is for this type of thing. Thanks!

    Well obviously you must have PHP and MySQL installed and functioning properly on your server.

    http://www.php.net/
    http://www.mysql.com/

    Since you don't seem like you know much about coding in PHP or SQL, you should use some kind of easy to implement and easy to manage PHP software or portal system.






    Some things you can check out:

    Coppermine Photo Gallery
    http://coppermine-gallery.net/
    A PHP/MySQL open source photo gallery complete with many features. Kind of resembles a PHPbb system.

    Gallery (not used by me)
    http://gallery.menalto.com/
    Another PHP photo gallery.



    PHP Nuke
    http://phpnuke.org/
    A portal, or "content management system." These are generally used to create and manage an entire website, not just a single photo album or whatnot. Most portal systems have plugins, add-ons, or built-in document and image management and presentation tools.


    E107
    http://www.e107.org/
    One of my favorite website management systems. You can install a plugin version of Coppermine Photo Gallery to work with this system as well.



    The majority of the stuff listed here is open-source and therefore free to download and use. Hope it helps...
