Online Pre-owned/Used Car Showroom Management System in PHP Free Source Code


This is a PHP project entitled Online Pre-owned/Used Car Showroom Management System. This is a web-based application that provides an online showroom platform for the used cars businesses or companies for the products or cars that they are selling. This project allows them to give their clients or possible clients a way to explore and read some information about the cars that are available to their shop. Each posted used car contains relevant information for the customer to read or look at about their desired cars. The project was developed using PHP and MySQL Database. The main purpose of this project is to give the company or business clients an easy way to search for used cars and know the condition, features, and etc. without going to the actual place of the shop. This has a pleasant interface and user-friendly functionalities.

I developed the project using the following:

  • XAMPP v3.3.0 as my local webserver that has a PHP Version 8.0.7
  • PHP Language
  • MySQL Database
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • Ajax
  • Bootstrap
  • AdminLTE Template
  • and more...

About the Online Pre-owned/Used Car Showroom Management System

The Online Pre-owned/Used Car Showroom Management System has 2 sides of the user interface. One is the Public site or the website and the other one is the Admin Side. The Public Side is the part of the application where the clients or possible clients browse, search, explore, or check the cars if it is available if they have already a specific kind of car to buy. They can also filter the list of the available cars by car types/category or per cars company/brand. As I have mentioned above, each car listed on the site has information about it such as the price, model, year, engine type, condition, images, and etc. They can also submit an inquiry about the car that they wanted to know that is not stated on the content. The Admin Panel is the side of the application where the management manages the list of cars available in the shop. This side requires a user credential in order to access the said side's features and functionalities. This side can be accessed by 2 types of user roles which are the Administrator and the Staff. The Administrator user can access and manage all the features and information in the system including the system information and user management while the staff is only limited to car and inquiries management.
