Project Description

Im currently learning php / mysql and have made myself a couple of mini projects to get me teeth stuck into. One of them i have found too complex but i am very interested in learning how to finish it.


- parse 3 xml feeds, get the data from them and place it in a mysql database

- query db and return array as example array (see example flow path)


- Written in vanilla php (no frameworks)

- parsing of xml feeds using simplexml / xpath

- DB interaction using pdo

- As i will be learning from this code, it needs to be super well commented and perhaps include a [url removed, login to view] file explaing any complex points / how to edit it

- For this example project, we'll have the xml files stored locally

- Please confirm which php / mysql versions to use before project is started.

If you've any question please let me know
