We've covered the maintenance screens, now let's put everything together. Open up mymarket/admin with your browser and you should see the administrative welcome screen. Click on the category and product links on the side and start playing with the system.

Go over the code and comments while you play with the system to get a good feel for what is happening. If you are relatively new to PHP or MySQL, this might be a bit hard to digest at first, but it will be worth it! To reinforce your understanding of what's going on, you should run SELECT queries on the database tables to see that the data in there matches what you see on the pages.

We've covered a lot of topics in this part of the E-Commerce guide. Stay tuned for the next part where we look at the PHP 4 sessions, and user tracking!
