PHP/MySQL beginner


I have a problem. Yes a problem that was discussed many, many times, but I didnt found anything useful to me. So I’m asking what’s the best way to learn PHP with MySQL? Any tutorials or book recommendations?


Build Your Own Database Driven Web Site Using PHP & MySQL, 4th Edition

This is where I started writing PHP about 10 years ago – it was originally a series of articles that eventually got polished and published as a book, now in its 4th edition. It’s still the only book I recommend to beginners.

Try dive right in and try and complete a realworld working application. You will learn the fastest and best by having to create something complete.

I think that right book is PHP and MySQL Web Development written by Luke Welling and Laura Thompson. Content is concentrated on real world applications not on hello world like any other book. I know basics of language, but thats not enough. I think that I will take that book.
