Sams Teach Yourself PHP, MySQL, and Apache in 24 Hours combines coverage of three popular open-source Web development tools into one easy-to-understand book -- and it comes with one easy-to-use Starter Kit CD-ROM for Windows or Linux. You will learn to install, configure and set up the PHP scripting language, the MySQL database system and the Apache Web server. By the end of the book, you will understand how these technologies work, and -- more importantly -- how they can work together to create a dynamic Web site. After creating a simple website using these tools, you will be able to manage a simple mailing list and create an online address book, shopping cart and storefront. You will also know how to fine tune Apache and MySQL and cover simple Web server security.
