Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Three key open source technologies -- Apache, MySQL, and PHP -- integrate splendidly to offer a complete (and free!) solution for building dynamic Web sites. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could learn all three at once -- and learn how to use them together, to solve real problems?

You can. In this book, Julie C. Meloni brings together all three technologies in one well-organized course. Meloni begins by walking you through installing all three packages from the accompanying CD-ROM. Next, she teaches you all the PHP you need to get rolling, from flow control to basic SQL. In Part III, you’ll learn how to work with forms, files, dates, times, and sessions, and restrict access to your applications.

Meloni then walks you through building four common PHP applications: mailing lists, online address books, storefronts, and shopping cart mechanisms. In the book’s final three hour-long lessons, you’ll learn to tune both Apache and MySQL, and take a closer look at securing Apache.

If you know how to build static web sites with HTML, you have all the background you need to succeed with this book. And if you’ve ever programmed or used a database, you’re really in clover. Bill Camarda

The Barnes & Noble Review
Apache 2, MySQL 4.x, and PHP 5 integrate splendidly to offer a complete (and free!) solution for building dynamic web sites. Wouldn’t it be nice to learn all three at once -- and learn how to use them together, to solve real problems? You can, with this start-to-finish course.

Julie Meloni first walks you through installing all three packages from the accompanying CD-ROM, then teaches you all the PHP you need to get rolling, from flow control to objects. You’ll learn how to work with forms, files, dates, images, and sessions; next, you'll integrate PHP and MySQL to support real applications. The book wraps up with four chapter-length application case studies.

If you can build static HTML pages, you’re ready for this book -- and if you’ve ever worked with databases, you’re doubly ready. Bill Camarda, from the January 2005 Read Only
