Re: [PLUG] PHP + MySQL book or online tutorial

I used a couple of books to get me going.

I bought several "Brainiac" SQL books but for me it was the "LAN Times Guide to
SQL" that gave me the most traction.  This is a special area that contains a lot
of detailed concepts - I recommend a concentrated study of relational databases
in general and SQL in particular.

For the PHP/MySQL part of the equation I felt that I leaned the most from "PHP
and MySQL Web Developmnet" by Luke Welling and Laura Thompson.  It remains on my
"immediate" book shelf years later.

Then, three or four years later I stumbled upon the Code Igniter framework and
I've never looked back.
