Creating a demo for a member management system with PHP and an MVC framework requires several steps, including setting up a database, defining the model, creating views, and implementing controller actions. Below is a simplified example using PHP and MySQL for the database. Please note that this is a basic demonstration, and in a production environment, you would need to enhance security, validation, error handling, and other aspects.

1. PHP installed on your machine.
2. A web server (e.g., Apache) set up to run PHP scripts.
3. MySQL database installed and running.

Here's a step-by-step guide:

1. **Database Setup:**

   Create a MySQL database named `toucantech` and a table named `members` to store member information. You can use a tool like phpMyAdmin or run SQL commands from the terminal.

   CREATE DATABASE toucantech;
   USE toucantech;
   CREATE TABLE members (
       name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
       email VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
       school VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL

2. **MVC Directory Structure:**

   Organize your project files into an MVC directory structure. For example:

   - /public
     - index.php
   - /app
     - /controllers
       - MemberController.php
     - /models
       - MemberModel.php
     - /views
       - add_member.php
       - show_members.php

3. **Create Model (MemberModel.php):**

   Define a PHP class to interact with the database.

   class MemberModel {
       private $conn;

       public function __construct($db) {
           $this->conn = $db;

       public function addMember($name, $email, $school) {
           $query = "INSERT INTO members (name, email, school) VALUES (?, ?, ?)";
           $stmt = $this->conn->prepare($query);
           $stmt->bind_param("sss", $name, $email, $school);
           return $stmt->execute();

       public function getMembersBySchool($school) {
           $query = "SELECT * FROM members WHERE school = ?";
           $stmt = $this->conn->prepare($query);
           $stmt->bind_param("s", $school);
           $result = $stmt->get_result();
           return $result->fetch_all(MYSQLI_ASSOC);

4. **Create Controller (MemberController.php):**

   Define a controller to handle HTTP requests and render views.


   class MemberController {
       private $model;

       public function __construct($db) {
           $this->model = new MemberModel($db);

       public function addMember() {
           if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] === 'POST') {
               $name = $_POST['name'];
               $email = $_POST['email'];
               $school = $_POST['school'];

               if ($this->model->addMember($name, $email, $school)) {
                   header("Location: show_members.php?school=$school");

       public function showMembers($school) {
           $members = $this->model->getMembersBySchool($school);

5. **Create Views (add_member.php and show_members.php):**

   Create HTML forms for adding members and displaying members by school.

   - `add_member.php` for adding a new member.
   - `show_members.php` for displaying members by school.

6. **Create the Entry Point (index.php):**

   This file will route requests to the appropriate controller action.

   $db = new mysqli("localhost", "root", "", "toucantech"); // Adjust the database credentials

   if (!$db) {
       die("Database connection failed: " . $db->connect_error);

   $controller = new MemberController($db);

   if (isset($_GET['action'])) {
       $action = $_GET['action'];
       if (method_exists($controller, $action)) {
       } else {
           echo "Invalid action.";
   } else {
       echo "Invalid request.";

7. **Testing:**

   Start your web server and access the application through `http://localhost/path/to/index.php?action=addMember` to add members or `http://localhost/path/to/index.php?action=showMembers&school=YourSchool` to view members for a specific school.

Remember to implement proper error handling, input validation, authentication, and security measures when deploying this in a real-world scenario. This is a basic example to get you started with a PHP MVC-based member management system.
