MySQL and PHP - CIS159/CIT32

Weekly Schedule

Remember RE-SUBMIT. If you get back a homework with errors and without a grade it means it has not been graded - you need to fix and resubmit to get a grade.

The CIS pool is now available for students that need to access licensed software that they cannot use from home.
Remote access virtual desktop

Week Information
Assignments due in one week unless otherwise stated. I may add some things during the week, so double check the schedule each week! For almost all the assignments I want to see the code you write and the output it produces. So send me the address and a copy of the code. With play computer assignments give me the code and the output as you feel it would be generated. Please keep copies of all work you submit until you receive your final grade at the end of the semester. Remember that I record/tape all my classes and capture notes on the Smartboard. These are available to you under Audio and Smartboard.
HELP schedule I will set up some optional class Zoom meetings that you can attend. Check the week of information to see the times and dates.
I am also available by request (give me a few time options) especially while we get other support in place. I have been meeting with a lot of students that request it, maybe something you should consider doing. You can email me with a couple of times you can meet and usually one of those will work.
I will send out the information to contact me on Zoom. I will post availability but you can also set something up with me.
Downloading WinSCP on your PC by SI Joe Fletcher
There is access to WiFi from your car under the solar canopies on the Fall River Campus.
Notes on downloading Office 365 which contains Access: 1) To get Access (part of Office 365) you first log in to accessBCC 2) You then select Office 365 Dashboard 3) You will see some Office products listed on the side and on the right you will see a button that says Install Office - click on the button 4) You want the first choice in the popup you see - Office 365 apps 5) Save the OfficeSetup.exe and then run it (when asked about making changes I said yes) 6) Now it downloads office including Access.

Then I want you took at this step by step video where I upload a file to cisweb using WinSCP which is available through Horizon.
Upload to cisweb
And another...
Loading to cisweb
Finally when you have it uploaded onto cisweb, you need to figure out the address to give to others to see the file or files you upload. There is a very short video on that.

SQL assignment I know the directions say picture of screen but in fact I would prefer just copying the output and pasting it in so it is more readable - check putty directions for doing this!

INFORMATION:

Because a text book is not required, I want to point you to a few good PHP tutorials/ references that you can use throughout the semester. I will also put up sites related to current topics periodically.
Tutorials Point (PHP)
The W3 schools tutorial gives you option to test things
A slow moving basic tutorial
I have broken the PHP down into groups of examples with accompanying videos. During week #1, I suggested you look at First Group PHP to get familiar with the basics and now we are going to move on to Second Group PHP and Third Group PHP (Third Group will also be a topic in Week #3.
We are now using Horizon for security reasons so you need to access cisweb where PHP is located through Horizon.
Horizon (Janelle Arruda)
The next videos deal with loading to cisweb and running PHP.
Loading to cisweb
Running PHP
The notes below are from semesters before we started using Horizon, but they have useful information about working with WinSCP and cisweb.
To load things up on the Internet, we use WINSCP. Please read the WINSCP and cisweb information: (note that in my examples I use cisweb.bristol.mass.edu as the host, we are now using cisweb.bristolcc.edu as the host. The port has also changed to 220.
Here is information about using cisweb and WINSCP at BCC
Talks more specifically about portfolio We will be looking at making a portfolio later in the semester.
If you want to download WINSCP at home, you can find it at this address.

INFORMATION:

Introduction to CIS159 - Spring 2024
Introduction to CIS159 - Spring 2022
We will start off the semester with a quick review of HTML if needed and then we will actually start the PHP. If you have already had CIS122/44 or have previous experience, this will be a review. If you have taken CIS120/17, you have already been introduced to HTML. For others I suggest that you use resources at the sites for CIS120/17 and CIS122/44 or other resources on the web to accquaint yourself with HTML.
There are a lof of examples under CIS122 Internet Developer.
A great reference for writing HTML is W3Schools
The students in this class have a variety of backgrounds, so for some HTML is review and for others it is relatively new.
Handout on using WinSCP3 Note instead of the host as cisweb.bristol.mass.edu we are now using cisweb.bristolcc.edu.
The port is now 220.
WinSCP3 is available as open source software and you can download it for home use.
You should be getting a username/password for the BCC site at the end of this week.
We will be working exclusively off the BCC cisweb site. You do not need to install PHP or MySQL, they are on the server.

EXAMPLES TO LOOK AT:

When we start to look at PHP log into cisweb and copy my examples from First Group PHP up to the site. You cannot do this until you have received password information from IT.
You can find First Group PHP at First Group PHP revised - a few things have been added

TOPIC VIDEOS:

FirstGroupPHP - hello world through name
FirstGroupPHP - html to PHP

Due the Thursday after the week it is assigned so due January 25th. (Note that homework is always due the Thursday of the week after it is assigned unless I give a specific due date.
