You own your own business.

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
