Make your websites more dynamic by including a comments form, making a personal place where members can upload pictures which are automatically resized, or maybe storing all of your content in a database. David Powers has updated his authoritative book to incorporate the newest techniques and changes to PHP, for example, coming of PHP 7. New features include the spaceship and null coalesce operators, generators, using variety shorthand syntax for record (), array dereferencing, and array unpacking together with all the splat operator.
The problem is, you’re not a developer and the notion of writing code sends a chill up your spine. Or perhaps you’ve dabbled somewhat in PHP and MySQL, however you can’t get past baby steps. If this describes you, then you have just found the correct book. PHP and the MySQL database are deservedly the most popular mix for creating dynamic sites. They’re free, simple to use, and supplied by many web hosting companies in their standard packages. This publication also covers MariaDB, a seamless replacement for MySQL that has been adopted on a lot of web servers.
Unfortunately, most PHP books either expect you to be a professional or make you go through unlimited exercises of little practical worth. By comparison, this book provides you real value right away via a collection of practical examples which you can incorporate directly into your sites, optimizing performance and adding functionality such as file uploading, email feedback forms, picture galleries, content management systems, plus much more. Each solution is made with not only performance in mind, but also visual design.
However, this book doesn’t just offer a collection of readymade scripts: every PHP solution builds on what’s gone before, teaching you the basics of PHP and database layout quickly and painlessly. By the conclusion of the book, you’ll have the confidence to start writing your own scripts orif you prefer to leave that task to others–to adapt existing scripts to your requirements. Right from the beginning, you are shown how easy it is to protect your websites by adopting secure coding practices.
