    PHP + MySQL = PostNuke

    As more and more websites come online, and as existing websites might want to have more customisation, the need for a powerful content management system grows. There are several out there, proprietary or free. Here, Hatch explains in depth the free PostNuke system. It's a spinoff from PHP-Nuke, an earlier free CMS. (Though the book doesn't really go into any comparisons between the two.) PostNuke uses PHP and the MySQL database. If you like, you might consider PostNuke to be a very 'webby' way of accessing MySQL. It is laid out in an explicitly modular fashion, with each component describing a block of functionality. Hatch shows how this partitioning is in no small part responsible for a lot of its success. Many independent developers have been able to easily put together modules specific to their websites. Several chapters are devoted to examples of these modules. A chapter each on user interaction, communities, online gaming and money making. Within these chapters are numerous case studies. It would certainly help you if you were already cognisant of PHP and HTML. Knowledge of MySQL is also good, though not as important. The module coding is in PHP, and that is where most of your time will be spent.
