In this book, you'll learn how to: Install, configure, and troubleshoot a testing environment with PHP/MySQL and Apache or IIS Learn the fundamentals of PHP and good database design Use Dreamweaver 8 server behaviors to create robust dynamic applications that validate user input for greater security and reliability Incorporate live XML feeds into your web pages with PHP and Dreamweaver 8's new XSL Transformation server behavior Download and apply a suite of custom-built PHP functions designed exclusively for this book Want to add the power of a database to your websites? Build online forms that send feedback straight to your inbox? Incorporate live news feeds and XML data into your web pages? This book shows you how to do all that and more. Dreamweaver 8 takes a lot of the hard work out of integrating a database into your websites, but it can't do everything. So instead of just giving you a series of instructions to click this and click that, this book helps you understand what's going on in the background. As a result, you're more likely to remember and to get it right. Most books on PHP concentrate on code and throw all design considerations out the window. This one is different.It makes use of Dreamweaver 8's vastly improved CSS rendering, and shows you how to build a site that's smart in both senses of the word.It looks good and is intelligent too. You'll learn how to change the entire look of the site, using PHP to serve up different stylesheets each month. You'll also build a contact form protected against email injection attacks. All of Dreamweaver's PHP server behaviors are put through their paces, and you'll even make some custom server behaviors that will come in useful on any site you create. Two chapters take you through the setup process with step-by-step instructions for both Windows and Mac OS X, helping you make the right choices: Apache or IIS? Remote or local testing? There are even instructions on how to set up virtual hosts on your own computer. And in the unlikely event that things go wrong, there's plenty of troubleshooting advice too. In this book we look specifically at using Dreamweaver's built-in server behaviors to build dynamic web sites using PHP and MySQL, the world's most popular open source server-side language and database server combination, which are both reliable, powerful, and open source (and therefore free to use!)This latest version of Dreamweaver includes more powerful support for PHP and MySQL than ever before, and we'll show you how to make this work for you. No previous experience of PHP or MySQL is necessary to use this book. Examples built throughout the book include a content management system, and an online image gallery. All examples are designed to meet modern usability requirements and be web standards compliant. Summary of Contents: Introduction Chapter 1: So, You Want to Build Dynamic Sites?

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
David Powers has written or co-authored three highly-praised books on PHP and web development such as: Foundation Dreamweaver MX 2004 (foED, ISBN: 1-59059-308-1), PHP Web Development with Dreamweaver MX 2004 (Apress, ISBN: 1-59059-350-2), and Foundation PHP 5 for Flash (foED, ISBN: 1-59059-466-5). David is a professional writer, who has been involved in electronic media for more than 30 years, first with BBC radio and television, and more recently with the Internet. His interest in computing dates back to his time as BBC correspondent in Tokyo in the late 1980s and early 1990s. With no corporate IT department just down the corridor, he was forced to learn how to fix everything himself. Back in the UK as Editor for BBC Japanese TV, David started working with web design. He persuaded BBC Online to let him have free run of a tiny corner of the BBC's Internet server; and he built and maintained an 80-page Japanese and English website-first, coding by hand, and then trying all variety of HTML editors, good and bad. He decided to set up his own independent company, Japan Interface (http://japan-interface.co.uk/) in 1999, and he is actively involved in the development of an online bilingual database of economic and political analysis for Japanese clients of an international consultancy. David is also an acknowledged translator of Japanese, and has translated several musical plays by Keita Asari.

The only trouble I had with this book was that he sure packed a lot of information into each chapter, and he didn't use the sidebars as much as I would have hoped. It's easy enough to follow along with the examples the first time, but if you want to go back again and figure out how he programmed a small detail, you'll never find it unless you reread the whole chapter again. All it would have taken was a few little bullets here and there in the margins to point out some of the off-topic stuff that was going on in the examples, and the book would be much more functional as a reference. As it stands, I probably will have to get a whole new book for that purpose.
Also, the support on this book is phenomenal. I missed a small detail in Chapter 6 that caused my script to fail, and when I posted on the book's message board, I had a reply from the author in less than a day. That's a really cool added bonus.
After reading 3 of 4 other PHP books, I found this one. While the others have been relegated to the shelf as references, this one is my learning tool.
There are many good reasons this book is an overall 5 star rated book.
If you want to unleash Dreamweaver as a PHP rapid application development tool, this is the book for you. If you want to learn to hand code PHP for hours on end, read the other ones.
If you want to set up your own localhost to test PHP and MySQL using Dreamweaver before publishing to the web, read this book. If you want to get incomplete installation instructions for Apache, PHPMyAdmin, PHP or MySQL, read the other ones.
I was familiar with PHP, and am an Oracle database programmer. As Oracle has become more and more expensive, I decided to take a serious look at my PHP hobby. Up until this book, I never saw PHP as a viable small application alternative because of the time required for building code line by line. This book changes all of that. Using Dreamweaver's extensive panels of PHP and application options and wizards, I have shown my co-workers how to quickly build and fine tune PHP using Dreamweaver.
I am also amazed to see an author so involved with his book after publication. His posts here should prove his belief in his product. Excellent book, sir. I will watch for your next one!
* I have five books with instructions on installing the open-source tools needed. This is the first time anyone's installation instructions worked for me.
* He writes in plain English, with explanations that are simple, concise, but complete.
* He gives step-by-step instructions that cover each detail, and the instructions are correct.
* He provides the code and examples he uses in the book, and shows you how to install a free tool to compare your code with his, to see where you went wrong.
* He has an up-to-date errata page posted.
* He gives almost instant feedback to you on the friends of Ed forum, if you get stuck.
Some specific ways this book helped me...
I built a web application to track documents and document projects. Some of the things that this book got me unstuck on:
* How to (fearlessly) edit the Dreamweaver PHP code without breaking things.
* How to check for identical records before installing a record.
* How to check for dependent records before deleting a record.
* How to automatically insert both date created and date updated time stamps into a record.
* How to make stripy rows with my auto-generated repeating table rows.
* How to use left-join to find orphaned records.
* In the database, how to split up one big table into related tables with foreign keys. Important for me, because I started with a giant Excel file exported as CSV, and then imported as a table into MySQL.
* How to convert, display, and store dates.
