    Your basic project/ scripts

    Good adivce, thank you.
  2. I have been been coding in php for about 5/6 years. While at uni I was taught the procedural way, and using all the myql_ functions to do database work. Generally speaking if you google for php coding examples you tend to come across examples using those methods which I now believe are out of date. In recent years I have learned some MVC, and used some frame works and open source applications (opencart, wordpress etc...) So im just wondering, these days if you had to write a basic script to get information from a database how would you go about it? or say you were going to make a basic 5 page website with php how would you set it up? The reason im asking these questions is because I want to get out of bad habits and using outdated methods so rather than write something like the following what would you do? $dbh1 = mysql_connect('localhost', 'user', 'password') or die(mysql_error()); //DB connection mysql_select_db('db_name', $dbh1);//choose correct database $query = "SELECT * FROM table WHERE something = something"; $result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error()); $row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result); echo$row["field"]; How would you set up a basic website (content pages,contact form)? In the past I have done something this : request ---> index.php (get page & content from db) ---> pass info to content.php As i said im looking to get out of bad habits and essentially get up to scratch on modern day practices for basic projects, using a framework or CMS for such simple things seems like overkill. Thanks.
