PHP is a powerful language to develop dynamic and interactive web applications. One of the defining features of PHP is the ease for developers to connect and manipulate a database. PHP prepares the functions for database manipulation. However, database management is done by the Structure Query Language (SQL). Most novice programmers often have trouble with SQL syntax. In this paper, the authors present the PHP framework for database management based on the MVC pattern. The MVC pattern is very useful for the architecture of web applications, separating the model, view and controller of a web application. The PHP framework encapsulated, common database operations are INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE and SELECT.
