Introductory textbook covering all the main features of the 'web programming' languages PHP and MySQL together with detailed examples that will enable readers (whether students on a taught course or independent learners) to use them to create their own applications or understand existing ones. A particular focus is the use of PHP to generate MySQL commands from a script as it is executed. 

Each chapter includes aims, a summary and practical exercises (with solutions) to support learning.

Editorial Reviews

"Web programming with PHP and MySQL fulfills the promise of its subtitle: a practical guide. The writing is friendly and clear, with the author indicating when every alternative to a command is not given and making suggestions on when it is necessary to consult with an Internet service provider (ISP). . the book is a useful reference and serves as an introduction to using PHP and MySQL for building applications for the web." (Jeanine Meyer, Computing Reviews, computingreviews.com, June, 2016)
