5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for a beginner 30 Aug 2003
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to get me started with PHP. I've used all the other web development languages like JSP and ASP before, but having heard good things about PHP I decided to give it a shot.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 7 May 2006
Format:Paperback
'SAMS Teach Yourself PHP, MySQL and Apache' is a brilliant guide whether you are a complete beginner or a pro.

I bought this with only prior knowledge of HTML and managed to sucessfully learn PHP with MySQL in a few weeks using only this book. A year later I am still using this book as a good reference.

The author covers everything from setting up a local server with Apache to manipulating images using PHP. And most importantly, talking to a MySQL database from PHP.

If you had no idea what I was just talking about don't worry because the book covers it all. There is also a handful of example projects to do using what you've learned from earlier on in the book.

I would recommend that you have at least some experience with programming, but it's not essential. However I would suggest learning HTML (or even better, XHTML) is essential before learning any server-side language, not just PHP.

Studying towards a degree in programming, I have access to a large selection of programming books at my institute. Having sampled at least half a dozen PHP books, this was definitely the most help. PHP is a fairly easy language to learn (especially if you have some experience with HTML), although many other books will overcomplicate the learning process by elaborating on small details to a ridiculous extent (think the Wiley 'Bible' books).

This book teaches you everything you need to know to learn PHP's fundamentals and by the time you've finished the PHP section of the book, you'll be capable of writing various PHP scripts. Everything you learn is accompanied with examples. Everything is explained clearly. I didn't find myself losing track even once. Thorough but to the point, this book is my highest recommendation for anybody wishing to learn PHP. A few days after finishing the book, I had written a purely-PHP image gallery interface that thumbnails and displays details for all of the images in a folder on a web server. I had to use forums to finish the gallery off, but the book is owed the main thanks.

As with most programming books, you won't walk away able to program the most complex scripts. "Expert" is a title no book will get you. Luckily, there are countless forums online that will expand your knowledge of the language further than any book on the market.

Unfortunately, the book's section on MySQL is rather poor. It assumes you have foundational knowledge of MySQL's commands and using the command prompt to modify database tables (why would you?). Quite disappointing, really, as the PHP section of the book (almost 300 pages) is fantastic.

Still, this book puts many of the other PHP books out there to shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy a different book ! 3 Mar 2008
Format:Paperback
This has to be the worst teach yourself book I have come across!
There are errors and omissions which will cause the newcomer hours of frustration when the software doesn't do what he expects.
For example in chapter 18, when describing the use of the mysqli_connect() function, the example erroneously gives the code as mysqli().There is no such function!! This is simply shoddy proof reading. Fortunately in this case, the code on the CD is correct. There are other examples which are not so obvious.
Another significant problem is the way the book skips over many details of the set-up of PHP and the way it links to MySQL. For example, there is no mention of tailoring the PHP.INI file to ensure that it loads the appropriate DLL files to run with MySQL. In my case, having set the software up (running under Windows XP) as described in the manual, PHP would not connect to MySQL, and because the book provided no guide as to how to turn on PHP error reporting, I was completely in the dark as to the cause of the problem. It took several hours of searching the web to identify how to turn on error reporting which then enabled me to identify the missing DLL files. Further web searches showed me how to include these PHP components and I now have a working set-up. No thanks to the authors of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bin the CD! 18 April 2004
By Mark VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I found the CD attached to this book very hard to use, and I do not suggest you buy this book to write any PHP or SQL on your own machine.
If, however, you have a web server somewhere on the internet, DO buy it. Right now! It features some great pre-built scripts, and will give you a good base grounding in SQL and PHP. With those tools, you'll be able to make a top-notch website faster than you think.
