    Help,

    Have been using various tutorials to get to grips with these two, and they have been great (Cheers Kyank!). I would love however to buy a comprehensive book, preferably with software cd included. I know a few such books exists - and that this is a dangerous question - but which would be best to buy?

    Cheers,

    H

    hi

    i will hold off on recommending php books, although i have Core PHP by Leon Atkinson and use it as a reference. It is intermediate to advanced.

    An absolute dream is MySql by duBois. Good examples, basic to advances, tips galore, great book.

    peace

    What kind of software?? For what OS? I have PHP/MySQL/Apache running on my Win98 comp and I use the red Wrox book and the PHP Manual (http://www.php.net) for all of my PHP needs and the MySQL Manual (http://www.mysql.com) for MySQL.

    "Professional PHP Programming" from Wrox Press is a good choice. All or some of the authors are members of the PHP team. http://www.wrox.com

    A couple of book reviews are linked-to at the end of my article. However, "Beginning PHP" is due out soon from WROX Press and should provide a really good introduction to this stuff as well.

    Cheers all for answers. Have now got hold of something which looks very promising "PHP fast and easy web development" by Julie C Meloni.

    Includes disk with php4, apache and mySQL. Looks like I'll be spendin yet more sleepless nights!

    Thanks again,
