Event Registration System with QR Code in PHP Free Source Code



This is a PHP Project is entitled Event Registration System with QR Code. This project manages the attendance/registration records of attendees or guests/listeners of an event. The system uses a QR Code (Quick Response Code) in checking the attendance of the attendee. This system is web-based software.

About the Event Registration System with QR Code

This project was developed using PHP, MySQL Database, HTML, CSS, Javascript (Ajax and jQuery), Bootstrap, and AdminLTE template, and other plugins and libraries. I used PHP version 8.0.7 and XAMPP version 3.3.0 in developing the system. I have created this project to help other programmers especially those new in PHP Language and IT/CS Students.

The system has 2 types of users which are the Admin and Registrar. The Admin manages all the data stores in the system such as the list of users, events, audience, and more. The admin user can also generate a printable report for each event. The Registrar is in charge of scanning and storing the event's audience or attendees. This user can only see the list of events that are assigned to him/her. The project has a pleasant user interface and user-friendly functionalities.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

Hey, the admin login is giving an error as Access Denied by localhost. Any solution for the same?

Hi, did you enter the admin credentials at the Admin Login? Please make sure that you are at the Admin Side of the system which means the URL should be http://localhost/event/admin. If still not working, check the database if the users' table has data. Let me know if it still won't work. Thank you
