Let's Create Food Ordering Website Step by Step

A. Designing Awesome Website for Restaurant Business using HTML and CSS

B. Creating Content Management System (Admin Panel) and making the website functional

Simply, Content Management System is an Admin Dashboard protected with Username and Password. Only authenticated users can access this panel.

And from this panel, an Admin can Create new Categories or Foods, Update or Delete Existing Ones.

They can also manage the Order submitted by the customers and can also track the food delivery status.

Similarly a Home Dashboard also shows the summary of total foods, total categories, total orders, revenue generated, etc.

So, let's begin creating this Content Management System or Admin panel for our Food Order Website using PHP programming language and MySQL Database.

1. Importing Website Design and Creating Database

Here is the ER Diagram for our Database Design of Food Ordering Website.

Since this is a simple Food Ordering Website, it just has 4 database tables.

1. tbl_admin

In this table we'll store the information of the Admins who will manage this website. They'll be able to add new foods, categories and manage order.

And the table will store information like Full Name, Username and Password.

2. tbl_category

This table will be used to store the information of the food category which are offered on our website.

The food categories could be Momo, Pizza, Indian, Chinese, Continental, Sea Foods, etc.

And the table will hold the informations like title of Food Category, Food Category Image, settings to either show or hide and featured or not, etc.

3. tbl_food

In this table we'll add the information of the individual foods available on website.

And the information like Food Name, Food Image, Food Category (Selected from tbl_category), price, settings to show/hide food and featured or not, etc.

4. tbl_order

This table will be used to store the information of the foos ordered by the customers from the website and includes information like Name of the Food, Price, Quantity, Total Amount, Order Date, Order Status (Received, Packed, On the way, Delivered, etc.), and Customer information like Customer Name, email, phone and address.
