In fact, at first glance, PHP5 and MySQL Bible is really some “old” (released in 2004, and the involved subjects are PHP5 and MySQL4 which seem outdated. But as one of the classic works of Wiley Publishing‘s Bible series, its 1080 pages’ content is absolutely worth to drill down and study.
For starters, PHP5 and MySQL Bible includes not only the most basic knowledge, such as: the setup of PHP development environment, PHP basic grammar, how to create database and data table in MySQL… In addition, it also comprehensively introduced the principle and basic programming knowledge for dynamic web development technology based on PHP and MySQL in detail.
