This tutorial (actually set of tutorials) focuses on the use of PHP to interact with a MySQL database. There are tutorials on a useful selection of basic database functions. A separate, basic tutorial is provided on each topic. The material was accurate and easy to understand. Sample, completed scripts are also provided.
The authors suggest using MySQL to create the database, but give an alternative PHP approach.
This material is good for people who have basic familiarity with PHP and an 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 database.
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.
