    They are the same. Note the github url on the packagist page. Generally speaking in these situations I start by designing the PHP interface I need and then try and code the necessary drivers to match that interface. As drivers are built it may be necessary to change the interface to accommodate. For example you may start with: interface DeviceController { public function start() : Promise; public function stop() : Promise; public function open() : Promise; public function close() : Promise; //... } Then, foreach device you have to support make a driver that implements that interface, for example: class ModbusRtuDevice implements DeviceController { private $socket; public function __construct(SocketClient $socket){ $this->socket = $socket; } public function start() : Promise { return $this->send('start'); } public function stop() : Promise { return $this->send('stop'); } public function open() : Promise { return $this->send('open'); } public function close() : Promise { return $this->send('close'); } private function send($action) : Promise { $command = json_encode([ 'action' => $action , 'arguments' => [] ]); return $this->socket->sendCommand($data); } } The just code the rest of your application according to the DeviceController interface. I'd focus first on just creating an interface that you'd ideally want. Then focus on implementing a driver for it for whatever your most common device type is. Adjust the interface design where required as problems arise. Once that is working, move on to implementing a driver for the next most common devices. Again, adjust the interface as required but keep in mind your first driver. If a change is needed and avoid just adding some driver specific method/parameter. Adjust the interface to something that works for both devices and make the adjustments to the original driver as needed to accommodate the new interface design. A lot of this is sometimes easier said than done, I know. Sometimes it may take quite a few iterations to really get things in a good place.

    'One column'?? You mean a single column on a single record or that singled column across all of the records in that table? And how do you know that it has changed? Are you saving the original value somewhere in your session or in another record?

    Can you explain better what you mean by "changed database"? A database is a set of tables of which your server/account may have several. Are you talking about a chang e to a single table? How do you tell if a table has been changed? Query every single record and compare it to something saved?

    First step is to logs the contents of $data somewhere so you can look at what is in it.

    Attribute which are arrays (like "image" are ignored, as are attributes with no values. Where no heading translation is provided the raw attribute name is output. <?php $headings = [ 'attribute_pa_pack-quantity' => 'Pack&nbsp;Qty', 'attribute_pa_variation' => 'Variation', 'sku' => 'SKU', 'variation_description' => 'Var&nbsp;Desc', 'variation_id' => 'Id', 'price_html' => 'Price' ]; $systems = []; foreach ($variations as $var) { $atts = array_values($var['attributes']); $key = $atts[0]; $kv = count($var); $ka = count($var['attributes']); if (!isset($systems[$key])) { $systems[$key] = []; } $systems[$key][] = array_merge(array_slice($var['attributes'], 1, $ka-1, 1), array_slice($var, 1, $kv-1, 1)); } echo '<pre>', print_r($systems, 1), '</pre>'; ?> <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> <title>Example</title> <style type='text/css'> body { font-family: calibri, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; } .system { width: 30%; float: left; margin-right: 30px; } .item { padding: 5px; margin-bottom: 15px; } .hdg { display: inline-block; width: 150px; font-weight: 600; } </style> </head> <body> <?php foreach ($systems as $sys => $sdata) { echo "<div class='system'><h3>$sys</h3>\n"; foreach ($sdata as $item) { echo "<div class='item'>\n"; foreach ($item as $h => $v) { if ($v && !is_array($v)) { $hd = $headings[$h] ?? $h; // use attribute key if no translation available echo "<div class='hdg'>{$hd}</div>$v<br>\n"; } } echo "</div>\n"; } echo "</div>\n"; } ?> </body> </html>

    You are building your foreign keys the wrong way round, EG ALTER TABLE `programs` ADD FOREIGN KEY (`program_id`) REFERENCES `deal_type` (`program_id`); should be ALTER TABLE `deal_type` ADD FOREIGN KEY (`program_id`) REFERENCES `programs` (`program_id`); program_id is the primary key of the programs table. When it appears in another table (such as deal_type) it is, therefore, a foreign key linking back the programs record. Also CREATE TABLE `deal_type` ( `deal_type_id` int AUTO_INCREMENT, `affiliate_id` int, `program_id` int, `affiliate_deal_id` int, PRIMARY KEY(deal_type_id,affiliate_id,program_id,affiliate_deal_id) -- really? PK should be deal_type_id );

    If you have multiple web servers, no CDN, and no other form of centralized storage, putting files in a database is how you can distribute the files across all the servers. Another is replication - databases exchanging data with other databases. If you have multiple database servers running with replication already, putting files in there means those files are replicated as well. I disagree. I'm rather surprised to even hear that statement being made. But why? Why store them in multiple places? There's no need. A file is more than just binary data. Smart browsers can recognize the data from a PNG image and not confuse it with a JPEG image. But not all browsers are good at that, and sometimes file data looks similar across different types. Which means you need to know the MIME type for a file and send it to the browser. Which means identifying what it is, storing it in your database, and sending it through your PHP script. Additionally, a request for a file doesn't have to be for the entire file. If you had a large file, a browser could try to download it, and if that process fails (eg, internet disconnected) recover from where it left off. When it tries to continue it tells the server that it doesn't have to send the whole thing - only parts of it, or starting from a certain offset. Managing that on your own in PHP is annoying. Web servers can do all that for you.

    You could do it with PHP, but the more you learn and advance with web development the more you're going to need to know Javascript and understand things like AJAX. One step at a time. Get the rest of your idea in place, the stuff you already know how to handle, then when you get to the trophies you can think about how to use the opportunity to expand your skillset.

    here's a list of things i saw in the posted code - 1. don't put php variables inside of double-quotes if they are the only thing in the string. 2, don't use or die() for error handling. use exceptions and in most cases let php catch the exception. note: your use of mysqli_error(...) in the connection code won't work because there's no connection to use. 3. don't unconditionally output database errors onto a web page (this will go away when you get rid of the or die() logic.) 4. don't run queries inside of loops. learn to do JOIN queries. 5. if your code is tabbed that far over because it is located inside your html document, you need to put the php code that's responsible for getting/producing data before the start of your html document, fetch the data into appropriately named php variable(s), then use those variable(s) in the html document. 6. handling the negative/failure case is usually shorter then the positive/successful case. if you invert the logic tests and handle the negative/failure condition first, your code will be clearer. you won't have logic for the negative/failure case 10's/100's of lines later in the code. 7. don't use loops to fetch what will be at most one row of data. just directly fetch the single row of data. 8. don't put static calculations inside of loops. the various date values shouldn't change during one report (where they are at now, they will if the request spans midnight.) put them before the start of the loop. 9. don't put quotes around numbers. 10. don't selected things that are not used and don't create variables that are not used (given the amount of code, the cases i saw of this may not be accurate.) 11. if you are looping to do something (should go away with JOINed queries), don't evaluate count() statements in the loop. determine the loop count, once, before the start of the loop. 12. doing some of these things will simplify variable naming. you won't have to think up unique names for variables because you will only have one instance in the code. 13. the $AffID is probably from external/unknown data. you should NOT put eternal/unknown data directly into an sql query statement. use a prepared query, with a place-holder for each data value, then supply the data when the query gets executed. switching to the much simpler php PDO extension will make using prepared queries easy compared to the php mysqli extension.
