LAMP application using PHP and MySQL on a 1and1.com server. An in-house CMS system was used as the foundation, saving a great deal of expense.


The system was a tremendous success. The employees could check their days off anytime. The system used their hire date as a reset point to avoid all of the employees from taking all of their vacation at years end or some other arbitrary date.
