need tips for planing DB structure


Recommended Posts

Before you start, make sure you understand Database Normalization. Look online for Real Estate Data Models to see examples of how it is being done. A GUI DB manager like MySQL Workbench will be very helpful. Stay away from Phpmyadmin. Sketch out a "Conceptual Data Model". Then move on to a Logical Data Model, Then a Physical Data Model. This site will help you understand all of that.

Do not "code as you go". Make sure your DB architecture is well planned before you write a single line of code. When you have finalized your DB structure post it here and we will review it for you. When you get to coding, use PDO with prepared statements for you DB actions.
