How to Build Shopping Cart w/ Checkout in PHP
I just rewrite the code included in this post to fix minor problem encounter by other PHP programmers who can’t run the shopping cart.
The code is taken from this link: http://www.qualitycodes.com/tutorial.php?articleid=25&title=Tutorial-Building-a-shopping-cart-in-PHP.
As you may have noticed, a lot of programmers are screaming for help on how to fix some bugs on this tutorial. Since I cannot upload the code in the said website, I decided to post it here. Still credit goes to “Richard Clark”.
Changes on the code are following:
- Change “<?” to “<?php” to handle php correctly. Some old program still uses “<?” to run PHP code. However, PHP 5 is not stricter and requires you to use php after <?, unless you configure Apache to allow such a shorthand support.
- Add echo command instead of equal (=) sign.
Note: If you run the code prior to downloading this code, make sure to clear your browser cache.
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 SourceCodester.com for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, PLEASE:
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.
