Guide to PHP and MySQL (University at Buffalo Version)
I developed this guide as a way to present the PHP language and MySQL database to an advanced web design course. While teaching "Web Programming II" (CDA216) for the Department of Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering at the University at Buffalo and "Programming for the Web Environment II" (CIS475) at Buffalo State College for many semesters I have researched and used quite a few different PHP/MySQL textbooks. Most of these textbooks covered the PHP/MySQL topics well enough but they tended to be written with a general audience in mind. I needed to supplement these textbooks with numerous lecture notes specific to the localhost web server environment. Throughout this guide I will use the
localhost web server in the examples. You will need to contact your web server support for specific setting for your web server hosting provider.
This guide is intended for you to learn the PHP language and MySQL syntax.
