View Full Version : PHP beginner with a question

11-16-2010, 10:48 PM

I'm currently planning a out a website. I've used PHP a little in the past and am plenty familiar with coding and scripting so I have just this question to ask at the moment:

I know that PHP can be used to create a membership site and I'm sure it can be used to create a membership site that requires a paid subscription (correct me if I'm wrong) but, can PHP itself be used to automate the billing when billing is due for a subscription?

If not, what scripting language can be used to achieve this?

Sorry if this seems like a silly question. I need to know if I need to know more than XHTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP for this project.

Thank you,

PS - PHP paired with MySQL, of course

It certainly can. If you're looking to schedule PHP scripts running automatically however you'll no doubt need the help of cron jobs

I'm glad to know that. Thank you for your speedy response.

I had a feeling it could but I wanted to make sure.
