PHP and MySQL Web Development (5th Edition) (Developer’s Library)



Master today’s best practices for succeeding with PHP 7 and MySQL 5.7 web database development! Long acknowledged as the clearest, most practical, and most down-to-earth guide to PHP/MySQL web development, the brand-new fifth edition of PHP and MySQL Web Development fully reflects the latest versions of PHP and MySQL. 

Maintaining the approach that has made this book so successful through, Luke Welling and Laura Thomson add extensive new coverage of security, cloud and mobile development, and using the PEAR repository’s massive resources. 

Part I offers a crash course in using PHP, including data storage/retrieval, arrays, strings, regular expressions, code reuse, objects, and error/exception handling. Next, Part II walks you through designing, creating, accessing, and programming MySQL databases. 

Part III turns to web application security, adding new information on web security risks, instructions on how to build a secure web application, and up-to-the-minute discussions of cryptography and implementing authentication in PHP and MySQL.

A full section on advanced PHP techniques addresses everything from networking and filesystem interaction to internationalization and localization, generating images, and PHP frameworks and components. 

The authors conclude with step-by-step walkthroughs of several real-world projects – from automated testing, to  building user authentication and personalization, to building a web-based email service, to integrating with social media, to building web forums and shopping carts, and even to designing an API for your web applications.
