This book will give you a great introduction to PHP. I managed to install the included version of PHP /Apache without any hassle at all.The book covers accessing data from MySQL and gives you a quick and concise tutorial on SQL queries. Also covered is uploading, security, dates and times, php classes, and cookies/sessions.
I honestly can't believe that they managed to cover everything I can think of doing in a book this small. And its pretty good value for money as well.
If you are looking at getting into PHP, buy this book and you won't be disappointed.
The examples in the book are very good for beginners, if they worked, personally I think that you need to be an advanced user to figure out the error messages out.
Installation was not a problem, straight in no problems I soon had the phpinfo() screen showing, I was so pleased I had a cup of tea to celebrate! And the MySql interface was working as soon as I could press the finish button!
So the synopsis of this book is simple, if you have been doing web design for a few years, get it, if your starting out, enrol at your local training center.
