In charge of a website? Here's what you need to know about key web technologies!

Websites have become much flashier, but the building blocks to create them remain much the same. This information-packed book covers four essential web technologies: HTML and CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and MySQL. Learn how they work together to create web services, validate web forms, and set up a members-only site, plus discover how to create a templating system with PHP. You'll build on the basics and take your website to new levels with this friendly For Dummies guide.

  • Lay the groundwork — find out how the web works and how to get and install PHP, MySQL, and a web server
  • Style it — create a page with HTML, add style with CSS, build a JavaScript program, and see what jQuery can do for you
  • Rockin' with PHP — learn about PHP syntax and error messages, build a script, and use PHP to create dynamic web pages
  • Magical MySQL — administer MySQL and set up MySQL accounts, design and build databases, keep them updated, and connect MySQL to PHP
  • Service, please — create a web service, create and validate web forms, and set up login objects
