PHP Flat File Database Engine
Version: 01.0.0 
- Upload files to your host and address to FFDB root (index.php). It redirects you to installation:
- (Install FF) Set a root username and password.
- FF is ready to use. Include "FlatFire.php" to your script, everywhere you need FF functionality.
You are able to access databases from other servers using a POST request to
FFDB/api.php. for more information look at project Documentation or Git Repo Wiki.
Flat Fire is pure php and totaly function oriented so you can manipulate your databases, right from your script. In adition to this, FF has also powerful user-interface which prefer controls for Databases and configurations. You can access to this control panel using root username and password and from
- setup privileges for multiple users (similar to mysql).
- control members using core functions.
- manage users and privileges from control panel.
Free, Structured or Mixed databases
Flat Fire supports three database types:
Regular (table, row, column) format.
[DATABASE] / \ TX TableY \_____________________________ |ROW_0 Colum_0 Colum_1 Colum_2| |ROW_1 Colum_0 Colum_1 Colum_2| |_____________________________|
More creative data storing.
You can store data in any structure you want for each (free) element, its similar to storing an array with a unique "Id".
[DATABASE] / \ EX ElementY (ID) \________________ |Field_0 Value_0 | |Field_1 Value_1 | |Field_2 Value_2 | |________________| recall [ID]: get_free("ElementY") --> array([Field_0]=>Value_0,[Field_1]=>Value_1...
- MIXD (Mixed)
Mixed databases can store both free elements and tables.If you add a table to a free db or a free element to a structured db, flat fire will automatically convert FREE or SRCT to MIXD database.
[DATABASE] / \ EX TY
Detailed error reporting
FF can trigger (short or detailed) error messages on almost every error. - Note: You can disable error reporting from control panel.
Stable against code injection
Easy to search and read physical files
Opensource and free
- A little storage
- PHP 5.3+
--> if you want to use FFDB on php5 under 5.3 this is what you need: remove
FFDB\from all php files, don't lose anyone. if you remove namespace, you can call functions without
FFDB\, but you should not use these variables in your script:
$indb. more information about namespace, have a look at php official manual. --> you can also use namespaceless (git) branch.
