Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP and MySQL

Kevin Yank's take on the very popular combo of PHP and MySQL presents an easy to follow blueprint in building a dynamic website– It spends the first few chapters dealing with the ground work (installation of servers, basics of database design, etc.) and then proceeds to building a fully functional content management system.

The book also takes time to deal with nitty-gritty functions like error-handling and file operations in the code, a nice touch for server-side newbies.

The simplistic step-by-step approach is perfect for web designers wanting to move into web development, but may disappoint advanced users. The book also offers little reference to PHP functions. All code in the book can be downloaded online.

Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP and MySQL is recommended for developers with working knowledge of HTML who would like to have hands-on PHP-MySQL experience on the get-go.
