Hi guys,
how easy is it to build a simple school payroll management system from scratch using php. does it require any special knowledge of php and mysql?

No "special" knowledge of PHP/MySQL is required, but you should be around an intermediate level to successfully carry out this project. You will need to know php/mysql commands and functions, understand arrays, database schemas, and proper programming syntax.

There is no "simple" payroll management system because payroll is not simple. You need to be familiar with your local, state and federal tax schemes, withholding requirements, reporting requirements, etc.

Don't forget accrued vacation, special deductions, 401k matching, etc.

You should look into 3rd party When you can pay a company to do payroll for just a few dollars per payee, I doubt designing your own system is worth it.

I agree with stajer's comments. Plus, I would consider security to be a very high priority for a payroll system. If you haven't dealt with PHP/MySQL security concerns before, a payroll system is *not* the place to learn.
