    :) hi , i'm sorry if i post this into a wrong threads cause i'm new here.

    I've been thinking of this for few weeks , hope all the
    expert people in this forum willing to share their point of view.

    One of my friend, he is own more than 50 stationary shops.
    He is looking for someone to write him a software that able to know the total stocks of his 50 over branchs, and also the different stocks available on each of the branchs.

    From my point of view , normally this is written with software right?

    Will it suitable to write it on web base? instead of software?

    That can be done webbased...
    Does he has some sort of lists yet with the stock or stuff? Or how does he manage the stocks?

    You can use a web application for it, but make sure you protect it so that only the right people can access it.

    Did you browse Maybe such a solution does already exist.

    I am interested in that. What do you have in mind, .htaccess?

    You'd probably want more than .htaccess. Although there are mods available for Apache if the host/user can install them (ones that allow authentication against backends such as MySQL and Postgresql) there are other options such as PHP session/cookie combinations. For security reasons you'd probabl use PHP sessions coupled with a backend Apache mod which has been proved secure.

    yo dude, hehe . Thanks for all the reply.
    i'm sure all of you are the web developer in this forum, there are some question that i would like to ask as well, cause i just started to do my freelance not long.

    normally for freelance project , will be 2 people in a group right?

    1. The web developer ( develop website , backend coding, etc... )
    2. Multimedia developer ( create flash , UI for the website , Css, etc....)

    i'm still new , pls comment if i'm wrong.

    To be honest, I do both. For larger projects I have guys I work with who also freelance. When the project is too large for one of us, we band together by using the outsourcing approach. In terms of legality/payment etc. we're all individual freelancers, but we work together.

    If you're not 100% competent and/or 100% confident one or both fields that you listed above then yes, you need a second person to help out :)
