PHP is one of the most popular server-side scripting languages available. It's powerful and easy to learn. Combined with MySQL, a fast, cross-platform, and free open source database, it makes a very effective tool for developing database-driven web sites.
This book is all about developing PHP/ MySQL web sites with Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, the premier visual web site design tool. It will show you how to use Dreamweaver MX to rapidly develop database-driven PHP web applications with the minimum of fuss.
Throughout the book we use a real-world example application, a hotel room booking system, to demonstrate just how easily you can quickly build dynamic PHP sites with Dreamweaver MX.
This book will show you:
- Overview of Dreamweaver MX, PHP, and MySQL
- Designing the site
- Using server behaviors to interact with the database
- Hand coding and debugging in Dreamweaver
