When working hand-in-hand, they serve as the standard for the rapid development of dynamic, database-driven websites.

If you fall into this ever-expanding category, then this book is for you. Learning PHP and MySQLstarts with the very basics of the PHP language, including strings and arrays, pattern matching and a detailed discussion of the variances in different PHP versions. Next, it explains how to work with MySQL, covering information on SQL data access for language and data fundamentals like tables and statements.

In the process, you'll also learn about error handling, security, HTTP authentication, and more. If you're a hobbyist who is intimidated by thick, complex computer books, then this guide definitely belongs on your shelf.
