I am a total noob to php/mysql but I am trying to help someone out. Basically, they want to have a login feature (for wholesalers/distributors) that will log them into their own individual price lists. Not all wholesale prices are going to be the same so each account will have it's own seperate price sheet.
I don't think there are going to be a lot of accounts made initially but I figured going the mysql way will leave them room for growth if the company grows like they're anticipating.
My question is...how involved/complex is this project going to be? And aside from learning to code php and working with mysql (something I personally have wanted to do for sometime now), are there any alternatives that may not be as time consuming?
Thanks for the input.
ps. I just found the membership tutorial, may be something of value in there!

I would definately suggest going that route if the company plans to grow... I assume the other option you're looking at is using flat files or something?
As far as the "user-specific" price sheet... that all depends on the complexity of it and how you gather the data. It could be something that you could create in a few hours or a few weeks. Your post is a teeeeeeeeny bit vague on the depth of the project.
