Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

PHP, Apache, and MySQL are the three key open source technologies that form the basis for most active Web servers. This new edition guides you through the entire process of setting up your own site and walks you through every step, from the installation of PHP, Apache, and MySQL to database management, security, and integration with other technologies.

Featuring new information on the features and functions of the latest upgrades—MySQL 4.0.X, PHP5, and Apache 2.0—this book boasts a working Web site application and numerous updates throughout the text. The multi-platform approach addresses installation and usage on both Linux® and Windows®, and two common-themed, reusable Web sites are examined. Upon completion of this book, you'll be able to create well designed, dynamic Web sites using open source tools.

What you will learn from this book

  • Syntax, functions, and commands of PHP, Apache, and MySQL and how they can be used together in Web development
  • The ins and outs of data manipulation
  • The object-oriented programming advantages of PHP5
  • Ways of using PHP for connecting HTML-based Web pages to a backend database for dynamic content
  • How MySQL easily stores, updates, and accesses information
Who this book is for

This book is for beginners who are new to PHP and who need to learn quickly how to create Web sites using open source tools. Some basic HTML knowledge is helpful but not essential.

Book News Annotation:

PHP5, Apache and MySQL are some of the most popular open-source technologies for active web servers. In this comprehensive guide, the authors assume readers have very limited experience with the concepts, and so start with configuring the installation of all three programs. They then step through using the programs, including creating PHP pages with PHP5 and using PHP5 with MySQL, suing tables to display data, letting the user work with data, and letting the user edit the database. They show how to build databases, send email, personalize, and create an online store. Rather than working from theory to practice, the authors start with a project such as a comic book or movie and describe features that apply. They include a number of quick references in the appendix.
