    Hello - I have targeted a lovely guitar shop in my area to offer to do a site for my portfolio. I think I can do him a good site with care and attention to detail and a bit of passion, as I am a guitarist.
    He was concerned about content and wants a database, well php and SQL spring to mind and I think I can wrap my head around that.
    I don't think he requires online transactions for now, he just wants his shop with details online.

    So I am concerned about security in the database - I think he will only have pictures and info and prices though - so need I not be concerned?

    I want to be sure before I commit to it. I don't like saying I can do something when I'm not at least reasonably sure I can do it.

    Any comments? Or does it not matter so long as they have "benign" content? The security, that is.

    Another question -
    I've done a couple of smaller sites for friends and family.I didn't charge them obviously, but should you charge a nominal fee say per hour for portfolio work for strangers? If you think that site may take a considerable number of hours to construct?

    Usually you want to have a base cost, an annual hosting cost, and an hourly construction rate. I'm not a pro yet though, so don't take my word on it.

    Databases belong on the server... most likely nobody will try breaking into your DB unless there's something sensitive there. Sensitive being much more than photos, text and prices (think credit card).

    Good luck!

    A side note, personally I think it is good practice to store the filename in the database column, and upload the image to your webspace.
