PHP is getting lots of attention as an open-source alternative to Microsoft Active Server Pages, not least because it runs on Linux and other Unix-like systems as well as on Windows. It is a server-side parsing engine that lets you put dynamic content such as online databases on your Web site. The beauty of server-side processing is that any browser can view the results, provided of course that you are careful with your Web-page authoring.

Few books on PHP are available, so PHP Essentials is particularly welcome. The author is a PHP enthusiast and also uses it professionally. Her aim is to provide a hands-on guide to installing and using PHP for those who have no previous knowledge of the product. The book's based on version 3 but covers new PHP 4 features too. Readers are expected to have a basic knowledge of HTML, though. Although databases such as SQL Server and Oracle are briefly discussed, there is a special focus on using PHP with MySQL, an excellent open-source database server. (This is a common partnership, so the focus is appropriate.)

After tackling installation and basic PHP scripts, the book gets straight to the business of linking with a database. The text includes a short introduction to SQL and a complete example of how to create and query a database table. Further chapters cover user authentication, session management with cookies, and Web-based database administration. Finally, a complete e-commerce example in included, with code both printed in the book and available from a supporting Web site. An appendix offers a PHP language reference.

This book teaches by example. It is manageable in size and has a friendly, real-world feel. It is not the last word on the subject, though, so it's best suited to PHP newcomers or those using rival technology who want an idea of what PHP can do. --Tim Anderson, Amazon.co.uk


Why I Wrote PHP Essentials
Whether you're a first-time programmer or you have a few years of web application development under your belt, I think you'll find something useful in this book. Hopefully, what you'll find is a simple "learn-by-example" path to developing successful, dynamic Web sites.

Unlike the Web itself, this book is fairly linear: you'll start by installing the software needed to use PHP, including a Web server (Win/UNIX/Mac) then gradually move into "Hello World!" scripts and eventually create shopping carts and other database-driven applications.

I didn't write this book to be the one and only PHP book on your bookshelf. That's why it's fairly short (relative to other programming books!) This is an overview book, a "don't be afraid, PHP won't bite" kind of book. There are so many different ways to do one task, and so many different ways that a person can teach another how to do something, that I don't believe any one book can ever be the one-stop text for anything.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book! Very usefull for newbies 28. Dezember 2000
Von Ein Kunde
It's a great book for starting php programming without programming experience. From the first step on you're confronted with easy to unterstand examples. With this book I started programming a small DB app within two days

4.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty good for beginners 30. Juli 2000
I read the reviews of the Professional PHP Programming book, and noted a lot of people said there were typos in that book, even though it was very good otherwise. As a PHP novice, I cannot afford to muddle through a typo-ridden book. So I looked at Web Applications With PHP 4, and that book was so advanced that the *first* chapter is titled "Advanced PHP" -- no install guide or anything else.
This book, PHP Essentials, is geared toward not only PHP newbies, but also people who have never programmed anything in any language. That's a little bit basic even for me, as I do at least know Perl and JavaScript. But it looked better that the first two books I tried, so I bought it.
I don't regret buying it. It is written in such a simple, friendly manner, that I was able to breeze through the first half in about an hour. If you're good at HTML, and you're looking to get into programming, this may be just what you need. This book will teach you, in basic terms, how to create if-else statements, what the proper syntax is for PHP code, how it integrates into the HTML page, what variables are, how to capture form data and write it to a file or database, how to send email from a Web page, how to send HTTP headers (so you can set cookies and do redirects), and it will step you through building a shopping cart system.
Now, if that were it, this book would be a five star book. However, being that I do have some programming background, and did have some idea of what PHP could do, let me tell you why I gave it four stars instead of five. First, there are some technical inaccuracies, such as the statement that Netscape 3+ supports style sheets (Netscape 3 has zero support, it's only Netscape 4+). But that's not bad.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Missing important points 28. Juli 2000
As a PHP newbie, but professional C++/Java/EJB programmer, I was really disappointed by this book mainly because it complitely ommits the Object Oriented (OO) aspects of PHP as well as common code reusability principles which are very important when building dynamic web sites. If you look for a reference for accessing particular aspects of PHP such as sessions, database access and so on, this book is for you, but if you want to go beyond and planning to use PHP professionally, you should buy another book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A very good start 14. Juli 2000
I bought this book together with MySQL (Other New riders; ISBN: 0735709211) and got started right away. I think the book does exactly what the title says. PHP Essentials, thats it. No more, maybe less. Its very easy to read and the examples are very good. I wish other books would have this easy language. No technocrat gibberish. I only give it 4 stars because there are a few things missing like: examples of how to use QUERY_STRING. Also it feels like that the possibilities of PHP outside the essentials is totally left out. Final words: im very happy with this book, and I can truly recommend it to anyone who is interrested in PHP programming.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Marvellous! 30. Juni 2000
PHP is something that is a real heavy-weight stuff. Perhaps one of the most powerful server side scripting languages. But the way Julie Meloni has written it, it looks something very light in weight, maybe something as light as HTML.
A perfect book for everyone!

4.0 von 5 Sternen PHP Essentials A Good Start 25. Juni 2000
I purchased this book after reading several reviews that described it as too light for a seasoned programmer. This is usually a good sign for someone like me and it turns out that I was correct. The book initiates new PHP programmers with a very fundamental and broad "step-by-step" approach that will help you build a PHP ap very quickly. If you are a serious or professional programmer, you will still need the Wrox (or comparable) book which is a very detailed reference book. If you are like me, you will end of with several books on any specific topic anyway. I'm glad I purchased this book first since I would still be digging in the Wrox book to put it all together. The book doesn't cover all PHP functions and capabilities but it doesn't pretend to be a reference book. Perl programmers are going to love PHP.

4.0 von 5 Sternen PHP Essentials - Good for Beginners 23. Juni 2000
I'm a Linux newbie, MySQL newbie, and PHP newbie, but I'm currently learning all three.
PHP Essentials has been the most helpful resource I've bought, because it's written in an accessible, friendly manner that doesn't assume I know more than I actually do.
I'm sure that to be a PHP stud I'll have to get into it more, and maybe buy some more books, but this was the right place to start for me.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A well written but beginner book 19. Juni 2000
Very basic but well written. Not many other alternatives out there yet. Was it worth the money - yes, I guess so but it leaves a lot to learn.
Also, I'm not a SQL Server fan, but the Author makes the silly claim that MySQL is more powerful than SQLServer.
