3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but get the slightly more complicated one!, 21 April 2004
This review is from: PHP for the World Wide Web (Visual QuickStart Guides) (Paperback)
This book is good for your basic start in PHP. I've pretty much worked through it and found it to be well explained and easy to follow. For this I recommend it.
However, on the introduction of PHP4.1 the register_globals command is set to off as default. This means that if your server is running PHP4.1 or later with a default setup most of the example scripts featured in the book will need a small amount of modification before you can run them.
This book is a solid intro on PHP and the changes to the scripts needed to get them up and running are minimal. But, I would suggest getting 'PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Websites' by the same author and publisher as it covers all the topics in this book (and more), has the updated globals handling for PHP4.1 and covers MySQL. It isn't even that much more expensive!
