Introductory textbook covering all the main features of the 'web programming' languages PHP and MySQL together with detailed examples that will enable readers (whether students on a taught course or independent learners) to use them to create their own applications or understand existing ones. A particular focus is the use of PHP to generate MySQL commands from a script as it is executed. Each chapter includes aims, a summary and practical exercises (with solutions) to support learning. Chapters are designed to stand alone as far as possible, so that they can be studied independently of the rest of the text by those with some previous knowledge of the languages. There is a comprehensive glossary of technical terms, together with extensive appendices for quick reference of language features.

Appendices
“Web programming with PHP and MySQL fulfills the promise of its subtitle: a practical guide. The writing is friendly and clear, with the author indicating when every alternative to a command is not given and making suggestions on when it is necessary to consult with an Internet service provider (ISP). … the book is a useful reference and serves as an introduction to using PHP and MySQL for building applications for the web.” (Jeanine Meyer, Computing Reviews, computingreviews.com, June, 2016)
