    Did I miss something? I thought this book was only available to SP viewers... yet Wayne is advertising it on his new venture.

    Do I smell an affiliate programming coming on?

    Variable not set

    Warning: Undefined variable: submitjoke in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot/serverscripting/PHP/dbconect.php on line 23


    I am a little confused as to why you have this line
    if ($submitjoke == "SUBMIT") {

    when it causes the above error until you give $submitjoke a value.

    Im sure you will enlighten me

    Got It

    You need to add this baby to your php.ini

    error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE;

    where '& ~E_NOTICE' kills those messages

    Hi Kevin,

    I just got my copy of your book the other day. It only took about a week to get. Very nice work! I can't wait to get through it. I have actually learned quite a bit already just browsing through it.

    I hope you have a lot of success with it,

    Kevin's New Book

    I am interested in getting this book. I have a quick question though. It stikes me as kind of odd that you chose hard copy, real paper and didn't go with the e-book method especially considering it would have helped keep costs down and probably profits up. Please explain the thinking behind this decision.

    Thanks,
    John

    I have some recommendations for this book, because as a PHP programmer I think it would do a lot better if you took this into mind: (keep in mind, I'm trying to help, so if something offends you, I'm very sorry and I did not intend it)

    Seems like a pretty cool book, but why so much money for such a small book? $40 (including shipping) for a 250 page book? You've got to consider lowering the price and revising the book: show the reader how to create forums, web based email applications, chat rooms, etc. If you're going to charge in the $30-$50 range you better give the reader a book that is so good, easy to learn from and so big that it is one of the only PHP books he'll need on his bookshelf.

    I bought the PHP and MySQL Web Development (Sams is the publisher) for a big 50 bucks but it is like more than 3 times as much tutorial content in the book, shows you how to do way more stuff, and is very straight forward.

    Also, some other recommendations are (for people aspiring to be a PHP programmer):

    1) PHP and MySQL Web Development (Publisher: Sams)
    2) PHP Developers Dictionary (Publisher: Sams)
    3) Web Application Development with PHP 4.0 (New Riders)
    4) After you're done with the above three books, get "MySQL" (Publisher: New Riders)

    Hope that helps, Sitepoint staff and apiring PHP programmers-

    Gregory C.
    PS: PHP is an awesome language, BTW.

    Just a note

    In the code of chapter six from the download.

    newjoke.php

    <form action="<?=PHP_SELF?>" method="post">
    <p>Enter the new jokebr />
    <textarea name="joketext" rows="15" cols="45" wrap></p>
    </textarea>

    <?=PHP_SELF?> should be <?=$PHP_SELF?>

    correct?

    Got the book and like it, you plan to write more books?

    Shipping times to the UK are fluctuating wildly between 1 and 3 weeks. Wish I could be more specific, but at the moment I can't.

    That's OK -- as long it isn't longer than 3 [possibly 4]weeks, cos I might not be at this address (might have gone home for Chrimbo...)

    I just spent a few hours in Borders and after looking through dozens of PHP Books (and a few PHP/MySQL books which focus mostly on e-commerce) that ranged from $60.-$100. I've deciced to buy this one

    Seems to just what I need (working on my own CMS type thing).

    Just wondering how your sales are doing?

    We've had a few orders to the Netherlands, and we're seeing shipping times similar to the UK -- 1 to 3 weeks. Same goes for most of Europe.

    A little clarification please ...

    Kevin,
    I bought your book. I downloaded and installed PHP and mySQL no problem ... til I got to page 21.
    I opened php.ini and had no problems until instructed to make the settings match:
    doc_root = the document root folder of your web server

    I'm not sure what you mean here - the web server my site will be hosted on? ... document 'root' folder?? is this 'public html' directory folder? Or is this a 'server' we've set up on my system?? Arrrgg. Just when I thought things were clickin' along!

    Also, the next one says:
    extension_dir = the PHP install directory
    Is this on my system?? All I could find on my system was php.exe ... this can't be what your refering to ... is it???

    Yeeesh ... makes me feel like such a moron having to ask but, could your explain further as to who's servers, located where, with samples of what these paths should look like???

    Double aarrgg! Thanks for any help you can give. Was havin'a great time 'til this snagged me up. I think y'er going to earn every canadian peso equivelent I paid for your book (about $70 with shipping and GST) trying to help this dinosaur understand it.

    Thanks,
    Gord

    The document root folder is the directory on the server's hard drive that corresponds to the root directory of the Web site. If you're running a Web server on your own computer for the purposes of learning PHP and MySQL, then the document root folder is the directory on your hard drive where you must place index.html so that you can view it in your Web browser by typing http://localhost/index.html.

    The default document root directory in Apache for Windows is C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache\htdocs\.

    The default document root directory in IIS is C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\.

    The PHP install directory is wherever you extracted the PHP4 ZIP file that you downloaded earlier in the chapter. The directory where php.exe resides is exactly the spot you're looking for.

    Hope that helps!
