php problem for a little cart

hi everybody

***** i have a homework that need to submit the little cart. i feel frustrated in the problem of

images upload. for example , i am making a pet shop, and i have mysql tables like ....e.g.

category , products , photos, since now i just try to have little categories for experiment, like cat

or birdie, and users upload the photos to the site, and i have a backend admin to monitor the

products, i want to get photos related to "specific product" or related to "specific product of

certain category" from those table photos , can someone let me know how i can write the sql

statement for this case. (for example i want to get the dog category photos only to the category


**** Also for multiple file upload , it seems that there is a thing like below

<input type="file" name="uploads[ ]" />

uploads[ ] is array right? and how can i make use of this and so that when upload to mysql

photos table, those records are related to those products.

Thank you

It sounds like what you are trying to do is pretty complicated. Do you have to do it with an image upload through the browser? Or could you edit the database directly to add web addresses for the images? That would be a lot easier than building a content management system to handle all this data.

yes, randy , u could say that i am building a "cms" but indeed it is just a little 4 items webpage that manage the products , categories, orders, and logout
