What is this book about?

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 websites.

This book is all about developing PHP/MySQL websites with Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, the premier visual website 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 quick and easy it is to build dynamic PHP sites with Dreamweaver MX.

What does this book cover?

Here are just a few of the things you'll find covered in this book:

  • Overview of Dreamweaver MX, PHP, and MySQL
  • Designing a site
  • Using server behaviors to interact with the database
  • Hand-coding and debugging in Dreamweaver

Who is this book for?

This book is for the web professional looking to develop database-driven PHP web applications using Macromedia Dreamweaver MX. Some knowledge of HTML and web design is assumed, but you don't need to know any PHP or MySQL.
