print Tutorial 1: Building a simple guest book

Getting Started

For this tutorial you will need a clean install of the framework, a web server with PHP, PHP CLI tools, MySQL and be able to access the and run the base and baseAdminSites. If you have not configured these yet, then be sure to do so before going any further with this tutorial. Additionally you will need a PHP editor (e.g. Zend Studio, NetBeans 6.5+, PhpStorm etc).

To keep things simple, the tutorial uses all the default paths. If you change any of the paths, be sure to modify the instructions accordingly.

Any code examples listed will use a JavaScript code highlighting engine.

So now we will build our basic table in a database and use the framework to build a basic interface to it.
