TIPS FOR BUILDING WEB DATABASE APPLICATIONS WITH PHP AND MYSQL
by Hugh E. Williams
The most popular platform for developing Web database applications is
the open source trio of PHP, MySQL, and the Apache Web server.
According to SecuritySpace and Netcraft, the Apache Web server is used
at about 60 percent of Web sites; almost half of these servers have
support for the PHP scripting language.

PHP, Rasmus Lerdorf. This book explains PHP language syntax and

As long as there's been a Web, people have been trying to make it

of the Web in general and of individual sites in particular. "Web
Performance Tuning, 2nd Ed." is about getting the best possible
performance from the Web. This book isn't just about tuning web server
software; it's also about streamlining web content, getting optimal
