Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
[HELP!!!] Newbie for app develop... (a bit long post)
hi all, I am a newbie for iPhone app develop and now I have to create an iPhone app for my project which about in-house restaurant ordering system. For my project, I had set up a local server (Linux + apache + phpMyAdmin + MySQL) to handle the database data and for the iPhone app, it should be used to get the data from the database and add data to the database. p.s: My server and iPhone are placed in the same network for communication and linked up with a router.
At this moment, I have created the interface for my iPhone app only. The first page is for waiter to enter the customer number and table number for further functions, then it will push to the main page with several tabs below for different pages like menu(for placing the order from the customer) and orderList(according to customer no. to the corresponding order list).
My questions are how can my iPhone app connect to my local server, especially the database? Is it possible to use PHP script to communicate with the server to get/modify the database data from my app and return the data by XML to my app (if possible, how can I do so)? Is my approach for this app develop correct? (iPhone app -> local web server -> database) As I have mentioned above, the first page is prompt waiter to enter customer's info, can I use that info to get the data from the database and how? (customer number is unique in the database). Finally, I had googled for long time but I cant get examples for teaching me how to deal with my problem, I hope u guys can post me some source codes for reference.
Sorry for my poor presentation. Hope you guys can understand my problem and help me. Thanks so much :)
