    PHP and My Sql/Larry Ullman
    It seems that there are many knowledgable people here with php. I want to learn php and mysql, and since I know pretty much nothing about it on the technical side, I would like to start out with a good book. I have spent some time on amazon and this book seems like it would be good for me to start out with. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/032...books&v=glance

    Has anyone read this book? Opinions please.
    Thank you for your time.

    I have not read it, but Larry is a guru so I would say it's probably an excellent book

    Thanks for the reply. I went out and purchased this book, and I will begin my studying soon. I'm also looking into webhosting so I don't have to use my computer as the server and have the possibility of having my isp terminate my service and fine me.

    If you're just wanting to build the sites for personal learning you can set up PHP on your own computer. Check http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/php/ for some downloadable versions, and http://www.phpmac.com/ for more information.

    Basically I am building a website for the car club that i am in, and i've noticed that php is going to allow me to do more with the website easier. (once i learn it properly) I will need a gallery, forums, guestbook, applications for new recruits, etc. To attempt to do all of that in html (if possible) would be a real pain in my behind. But if I can make practice sites with the links you provided, that is something I have to look into.

    Probably not a good idea to start off your PHP career by attempting to build a gallery and forums and guestbook - you can get all of them free from hotscripts.com.
