Product Description

PHP and MySQL Web Development, Fifth Edition

The definitive guide to building database-driven Web applications with PHP and MySQL


PHP and MySQL are popular open-source technologies that are ideal for quickly developing database-driven Web applications. PHP is a powerful scripting language designed to enable developers to create highly featured Web applications quickly, and MySQL is a fast, reliable database that integrates well with PHP and is suited for dynamic Internet-based applications.


PHP and MySQL Web Development shows how to use these tools together to produce effective, interactive Web applications. It clearly describes the basics of the PHP language, explains how to set up and work with a MySQL database, and then shows how to use PHP to interact with the database and the server.


This practical, hands-on book consistently focuses on real-world applications, even in the introductory chapters. The authors cover important aspects of security and authentication as they relate to building a real-world website and show you how to implement these aspects in PHP and MySQL. They also introduce you to the integration of front-end and back-end technologies by using JavaScript in your application development.


The final part of this book describes how to approach real-world projects and takes the reader through the design, planning, and building of several projects, including:

  • User authentication and personalization
  • Web-based email
  • Social media integration
  • Shopping cart

The fifth edition of PHP and MySQL Web Development has been thoroughly updated, revised, and expanded to cover developments in PHP through versions 5.6 and 7, as well as features introduced in recent stable releases of MySQL.

1This isn't the book you are looking for.
By E
You will not receive the complete book with this purchase. Four chapters, two regarding setting up php email service, one for social media integration and authentication and one for building a shopping cart are not in the book but are instead listed as being "web edition" and you must register your book to access the content online. Two of these items are listed on the back cover of the book as important topics within so it is pretty unacceptable they place content like that online instead of the book. It wouldn't be that big of a deal except that I have followed the directions in the text, visited their website and created an account and registered my book. Upon attempting to access the web content for the four web edition chapters I do not get a link to click which gives me access to any content. I see that I have registered the product but I do not have access to any form of digital content. Attempts to contact the company have gone unanswered and I am very disappointed with this purchase as social media integration was one of the reasons I purchased the book. I will also add that I HATE web based content, I buy books because that is the way I want to learn, i admit it is nice to have access to the code to copy and paste if I need to but I can't even access that if I wanted to.

5Great web dev book
By Marvin S Mallari
Why so many 1 star reviews?

This book is great, doesn't hold your hands and moves at a fairly fast pace. In my view, this is not a beginners book but as long as you have a good working knowledge of basic web principles and programming fundamentals from any language this book has great value for anyone wanting to learn PHP.

The MYSQL section is also very informative just not as in depth as the PHP section, however it does enough to get you going with working on the web. The MYSQL section does not dive into deep database design principles, however that is not the scope of this book. I'm glad it kept it simple as the main goals are to get an interactive website up and running.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the book and still am learning
