With the help of this book, an absolute beginner or experienced
web site developer, can create afully functioning Web
application. Understanding the intricacies of code in this book
is not required to build a simple blog, but Lengstorf's code
shows the most important functionality of Web applications,
including advanced subjects like regex, uploading binary files,
and automating syndication.
Anyone messing around with databases used to be considered geeky,
but in Chapter 4 Lengstorf covers how to connect to databases,
database design & tables, data types, data entry, and data
manipulation for all absolute beginners.
Chaper 6's example, using Apache's rewrite module to create
search-engine friendly URLs, was especially difficult for me, but
now that I understand mod_rewrite, I will incorporate a simple
blog into my Website.

that absolute beginners, or experienced web site developers, can
stacking up block by block. With reliable examples to illustrate
concepts, those who are building personal or professional web
