Learning new programming languages and how to properly use databases is not for the faint of heart. It takes time, patience and familiarity with some basics if you ever hope to achieve the nirvana of Web success. If you are behind on the latest trends in design and development, or just want to brush up on your knowledge, then PHP & MySQL for Dummies (not that you are one) might be a good resource. Author Janet Valade masterfully shows novice and expert Web developers how to use the PHP scripting language and MySQL database to build Web database applications.
This updated edition of PHP and MySQL for Dummies covers changes in PHP 5 and the latest version of MySQL - including programming techniques for the new PHP default setting, methods for handling MySQL security problems, and extended information about Apache Web Server and Mac OS X versions of PHP and MySQL. The book also explains how to install Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X versions of PHP and MySQL (important if you are just getting started) and includes two complete sample applications - an online catalog and a members-only Web site. The book also highlights a companion website with links to various utilities discussed throughout the book, practical security checklists, and helpful code examples.
