Thanks!. Didn't expect that someone would reply but i'm really glad!. I downloaded an open source software called "Examination Results Explorer" i installed every thing correctly but it seems like it has a lot of bugs in it. First thing was that i wasn't able to dump SQL files over PHPMYADMIN so, i fixed it the problem was that it was an earlier version.You can find the solution in the comment i made.Even after correcting it i wasn't able to fix the error.I'm a newbie to PHP and can't fix in all the errors.We folks are developing results system for our school.If you really have some free time please have a look at it.Its under General Public License which i believe gives right for everyone to modify it and use it to very best of their knowledge.The link for the application is http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpere/
I'll take a look. Judging by the update history, it's probably written for a much older PHP environment and using a lot of deprecated functions/APIs. (The TYPE/ENGINE thing is telling you that the expected MySQL version is out of date — I believe that was changed going from MySQL 4.x to 5.x.) I'm not encouraged by the 0.0.1 version number; that likely means the code (even if well-written) isn't very robust (that is, it hasn't been exposed to a lot of possible bugs, so it hasn't been hardened against them).
One thing: I know that your existing site is in English. Can I assume English for this project, or will I have to account for Devanagari (and Unicode in general)?
Frankly, it would be a better idea to build a new application from scratch. Not only would it be easier than trying to fix what's there now, it would result in something that's more useful to students, teachers and administrators. I'm willing to help with that. (And no, this isn't a "hire me" thing; replacing the existing project is not a terribly difficult task, and it's an opportunity for you to learn what goes into making software like this from the requirements-gathering phase through to a finished product. It might take a couple of weeks to get it done, but that's mostly because of communication delays and time zones.) But that goes well beyond what's appropriate for this forum, so I'll ask you to PM me if you want to get this started.
