Free PHP Business Directory Script

by Yang Yang on September 29, 2010

Simple PHP Script is a website scripts arsenal for Kavoir readers. My plan is to write many simple yet useful website scripts and release them in SPS for you to download and use. Some of them will be commercial and some of them will be free. The first script is a business directory website script in PHP and MySQL that I’m releasing free here.

For the back-end administration control panel, use the demo account to log in.

How to download?

If you are interested in obtaining a copy of the script and use it for your own website, please sign up with our email list by the form in the right sidebar or the one immediately after this post.

After you have subscribed to the mailing list, not only can you download the script free, but you will also be notified of more free PHP website script releases in future.

What are the features?

This business directory script has a handy multi-step installation module to help you deploy the script on your server. PHP 5 is required. For now, you have to install it at the root of a dedicated domain or subdomain such as or You cannot install it in sub-directories such as

It also comes with a user registration / contribution system and a full-fledged administration control panel. You can create and edit up to 2 tiers of categories. You and registered users can add business listings with business names, phone numbers, website URLs and postal addresses. You can choose to approve all the listings before they appear publicly or you can enable the users to instantly publish them on your site.

Paid inclusion is not available in this version yet. Nor is a usable template system. However these are already on my list of wanted features for this product.

Those who subscribes to Kavoir email list will receive all future upgrades for free. Just download the package again with the FreeCode that will be sent to your inbox after you have confirmed subscription.

Buy A Word Directory

Back a few years ago I also made this script: – the PHP link directory script that sells English words as links, $1 per letter. You can purchase a word and make it link back to your website. Feature the word on the homepage for an extra fee.

You can buy the script here:

I wish you all the best and thank you for this script. I have been looking for a good script for ages (even paying for it) and haven’t had much success. I thought I’d give it a go again today because I am doing it now with WP and it is a lot of work. I have some ideas on how exactly I want my directory. Maybe you can help me.

I’m going to improve this script as much as I could in the near future. Will definitely need input from passionate users like you. Thanks!

I am new to the Search Engine Optimization game. This seems like the perfect thing I can use to give me an edge with listings in business directories.

I installed your script and it works great but just interested how would you go around editing the template?

thanks a lot

Yang Yang March 17, 2011 at 10:30 pm

You have to manually edit the code (HTML template and CSS styles). There are no easy switch between themes.
