Expert PHP and MySQL
Author: Marc Rochkind
Expert PHP and MySQL takes you beyond learning syntax to showing you how to apply proven software development methods to building commerce-grade PHP and MySQL projects that will stand the test of time and reliably deliver on customer needs. Developers of real-world applications face numerous problems that seem trivial on the surface, but really do take some skill to get right. Error handling is about more than just the mechanics in the PHP syntax, but also about handling MySQL errors, logging those errors, and about hiding information about application internals that error messages sometimes can expose. Meet these challenges and more head-on! Author Marc Rochkind shows how to begin a project right, with a clear contract and set of written requirements. You’ll learn about project organization, setting up a solid development environment, connecting with client personnel. Database design is essential, and Expert PHP and MySQL has you covered with guidance on creating a sound model and database, and on pushing functionality into the database as appropriate; not everything should be done in PHP. Error handling is covered at both the PHP and MySQL levels. Application structure is covered. Guidance is provided on reporting. And finally there is conversion. In Expert PHP and MySQL you’ll explore the following: The popular and widely used combination of PHP and MySQL Commercial-grade application of language and database features Human factors such as planning and organization Organizing a project to meet requirements and satisfy the customer Structuring an application for efficient development and future modification Coding PHP for productivity, reliability, security Generating online, downloadable, and printed reports Converting existing data to the new application

Practical PHP and MySQL Website Databases is a project-oriented book that demystifies building interactive, database-driven websites. The focus is on getting you up and running as quickly as possible. In the first two chapters you will set up your development and testing environment, and then build your first PHP and MySQL database-driven website. You will then increase its sophistication, security, and functionality throughout the course of the book. The PHP required is taught in context within each project so you can quickly learn how PHP integrates with MySQL to create powerful database-driven websites. Each project is fully illustrated, so you will see clearly what you are building as you create your own database-driven website. You will build a form for registering users, and then build an interface so that an administrator can view and administer the user database. You will create a message board for users and a method for emailing them. You will also learn the best practices for ensuring that your website databases are secure. Later chapters describe how to create a blog, a product catalog, and a simple e-commerce site. You will also discover how to migrate a database to a remote host. Because you are building the interactive pages yourself, you will know exactly how the MySQL and PHP work, and you will be able to add database interactivity to your own websites with ease.

Advanced PHP Programming
Author: George Schlossnagle
Publisher: Pearson Education
This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Over the past three years PHP has evolved from being a niche language used to add dynamic functionality to small sites to a powerful tool making strong inroads into large-scale, business-critical Web systems. The rapid maturation of PHP has created a skeptical population of users from more traditional "enterprise" languages who question the readiness and ability of PHP to scale, as well as a large population of PHP developers without formal computer science backgrounds who have learned through the hands-on experimentation while developing small and midsize applications in PHP. While there are many books on learning PHP and developing small applications with it, there is a serious lack of information on "scaling" PHP for large-scale, business-critical systems. Schlossnagle's Advanced PHP Programming fills that void, demonstrating that PHP is ready for enterprise Web applications by showing the reader how to develop PHP-based applications for maximum performance, stability, and extensibility.
Explains how to access and create MySQL databases through PHP scripting, including discussion of authentication, network connectivity, sessions, and content management.
Introductory textbook covering all the main features of the 'web programming' languages PHP and MySQL together with detailed examples that will enable readers (whether students on a taught course or independent learners) to use them to create their own applications or understand existing ones. A particular focus is the use of PHP to generate MySQL commands from a script as it is executed. Each chapter includes aims, a summary and practical exercises (with solutions) to support learning. Chapters are designed to stand alone as far as possible, so that they can be studied independently of the rest of the text by those with some previous knowledge of the languages. There is a comprehensive glossary of technical terms, together with extensive appendices for quick reference of language features.
PHP MySQL Website Programming
Author: Dilip Thomas, Jessey White-Cinis, Chris Lea, Mike Buzzard
PHP MySQL Website Programming: Problem-Design-Solution shows the development process for a website using a specific set of technologies: the Apache web server, the MySQL database system, and the PHP scripting language. It gives you a completely hands-on experience and guides you through the construction of a complete application-driven site from design to deployment. Each chapter in the book is broken into three parts: Problem: The authors analyze each task and identify areas that may be particularly hard to implement. Design: Once the problems have been identified, a proposal is sketched out for solving them. Solution: The code is developed and deployed to accomplish the task at hand. Throughout the book, good object-oriented PHP coding methods are used where appropriate. The site you construct features a modular design, so the individual chapters are generally focused on designing and building a specific piece of the site's functionality. You can find a working model of the site online at http://apress.mediatemple.net. This invaluable tutorial provides a lot of insight into the ways you can implement web applications with PHP and MySQL in real-world situations.
