Apress, Jul 17, 2003 - Computers - 528 pages
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.
