Overview

Building a Web Application with PHP and MariaDB: A Reference Guide by Sai Srinivas Sriparasa

For a long time, PHP has been one of the favorite scripting languages that developers use for web development. MariaDB is an open source fork of MySQL. It is a relational database that is used to build fast, scalable, and reliable SQL servers.

Starting with a quick refresher of the PHP language and MariaDB database, readers will explore concepts such as unit testing, session authentication and management, permissions engine, caching, security, and performance optimization. The book begins with basic and advanced programming techniques in both PHP and MariaDB, followed by specialized operations such as working with files and directories. Next, you will be introduced to the concept of REST, and how principles of REST are applied to host XML and JSON feeds for others to consume. The book will show readers how to build a web application that will be an online book store. This would leverage a logging system that keeps a track of the activity that is going on in the application.

This book will help a beginner to learn the basics of object-oriented programming with PHP and help a seasoned expert to understand the intricacies of securing and speeding up their web applications.
