I am a PHP and MySQL developer and I have to advise you not to do this job. You're looking at some serious legal ramifications, unless you can have your friend write up a waiver that he will sign which removes you from all liability in case his clients' stuff is stolen. I could see you learning on some other sites that it's not a privacy issue if people hack it, but this is a potential lawsuit.

Now if you do not take my advise, then you need to do some serious reading on PHP security methods. I would also put all the client info into the database, make sure you have two specific MySQL logins, one for the admin you should create your friend and then one that only has read only and write permissions for the login and the client data. Then your friend can enter the data through the admin, and then when the client logs in, you can take their user id and grab all their info from the database.

This is a lot more involved than this, but again.. Im going to have to recommend you learn with something a lot easier and with less liability then this job.
