Master today's best practices for succeeding with PHP 5.6 and MySQL 5.6 web database development! Long acknowledged as the clearest, most practical, and most down-to-earth guide to PHP/MySQL web development, the brand-new Fifth Edition of PHP and MySQL Web Development fully reflects the latest versions of PHP and MySQL. Maintaining the approach that has made this book so successful through, Luke Welling and Laura Thomson add extensive new coverage of security, cloud and mobile development, and using the PEAR repository's massive resources. Part I offers a crash course in using PHP, including data storage/retrieval, arrays, strings, regular expressions, code reuse, objects, and error/exception handling. Next, walk through designing, creating, accessing, and programming MySQL databases. Part III turns to e-commerce, adding extensive new coverage of web security, plus up-to-the-minute discussions of authentication and secure transactions. A full section of advanced PHP techniques addresses everything from networking and filesystem interaction to image generation and session control. The authors conclude with primers on real-world development and debugging, followed by ten start-to-finish case studies, from authentication to content management, personalized PDFs to web services and Web 2.0 apps.
