About this book

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.

About the authors

Dilip Thomas hails from the sleepy little town of Cochin, set in God's own country (India). He is committed to the PHP community, and much of his thrill comes from peering into that community from a philosophical perspective. He first got hooked onto open source in his sophomore days in college, and he has been playing the role of a technology evangelist ever since. His interests also lie in the Apache Jakarta project and open standards technologies in general. He was once spotted organizing bungee jumping shows to flustered audiences in his favorite city of Bangalore.
