Physical_Goods coming in diff to screen on tutorial

Hi there

a quick one, I have noticed after finishing the entire PHP Starter Kit tutorial that when you view the tables within the physical_goods schema it is showing me the same identical contents to digital_goods? I went back to the schema section and went thru it again but can't seem to see why this is different on my system.

see attached snapshots
1 physical_goods
2 digital_goods
3 WA Starter Kit snapshot showing different tables to expect (digital goods dropdown selected, showing physical goods with things like available colors et which I cannot see?)
4 MAMP phymyadmin snapshot showing when I select digital goods dropdown it only shows digital goods)

I have downoaded the latest starter kit and restored those sql files but there is no difference in the result?

As I remember, the difference is the additional fields in the items table that handle number of downloads, file locations, etc. for digital downloads.

Like Office said the difference should only be in the items table where there will be extra columns to handle the delivery of the digital goods that do not pertain to the physical goods.

I hear what you guys are saying BUT I have noticed the same issue. If you look more closely at the attached images above you will see that the darker image shows the tutorial database which has a different set of tables than does the current database available for working with this tutorial. I have also been looking for the one shown in the tutorial which is why I am understanding the question and wondering if there is another database with more tables.
Ultimately, what I would like to know is which database, available from web assist, would be best for a starting point for an actual online store. ie. the one that would require the least amount of changes to make a full ecommerce working site. It seems that everytime I try to build my store I get stuck on the database part.

The current db that we offer in the training area is the one that you should be using:


This should be your starting point, you can customize it to fit your needs. This db can be found on the trainings page here:


The eCommerce db may differ from the DB Starter Kit since it was created afterwards.
