Thank you for reading this. To start the New Year, I have a nice, medium/large scale development for a great developer. The requirement is for a MySQL database and php pages that form an e-commerce solution (backend only - the front-end is a separate project entirely). I'm interested in Magento*, but would welcome the advice of some experts :) I've attached a schema for the database - forgive me, that my experience is a little limited, so although I would be happy to share the .dbs file I created, the criteria etc will need to be mapped out correctly. Also attached, an .xls documenting the items that must appear on the .php pages I expect there will be many questions, so please feel free to get in touch. *thank you to all the earliest respondents that saw my error in suggesting Drupal, when in fact I should have stated Magento :)
