Good introductory tutorial on PHP and MySQL database management system. The information is clear and easy to follow. It is presented in a step-by-step format. Examples are provided and the source code can also be downloaded. Two versions of the code are provided - one for older versions of MySQL and another for newer versions.

Technical Remarks:

Users will need access to a server that has PHP and MySQL installed. Prior knowledge of HTML/XHTML and database management concepts are required.

understanding of databases. Knowledge of SQL would also be helpful. It is
useful for development and/or review of a basic set of scripts to manage a

Technical Remarks:

Navigation is clear and the interface functions well.

Users will need access to a server that provides PHP and MySQL. Or they will
need to be able to install one. This could be an obstacle for beginners.
