If there is a popular database that is frequently used in PHP applications, that is certainly MySQL. Actually, MySQL is what stands for the M in the LAMP platform designation: Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP/Perl/Python.

The relative success of PHP and MySQL are due to each other, especially when used in combination. So, it is natural that many books like this "Web Database Applications with PHP & MySQL" are written to the vast audience of the two software products.

This book has all that you can expect in book about PHP and MySQL. It starts with a chapter that addresses typical three tier architechture of Web applications.

Then it starts with chapters that talk about PHP and MySQL capabilities separately first and then when used together. It has separate chapters about client and server side validation of Web forms, session management, authentication and security issues.

The last chapters are about a typical e-commerce Web application using PHP and MySQL addressing issues like customer database management, user login authentication, shopping cart management, purchasing and shipping ordered products and sending receipts by e-mail.

A final chapter addresses topics related with common tasks that are needed to accomplish in Web database applications like scheduling and executing periodic tasks to be run with non-Web PHP scripts, separating content from presentation using page templates and searching and browsing information stored by database applications.

If you are looking for a book that provides a good introduction and insight over the development of PHP and MySQL based applications, this may be a very good and upto date book on this subject.
