Mini PHP and MySQL course

by Pablo Matamoros - 14 May 2008

Apache, PHP and MySQLIn many web design forums I come across with requests for PHP tutorials. Professionals like graphic designers are becoming more and more involved in the programming field due to the popularity of tools like WordPress, Joomla, phpBB and many others. These open source tools are often based on PHP and MySQL and in order to modify the layout of a website it is often not enough to modify the style sheets. It is becoming almost mandatory to have a little knowledge of PHP and MySQL.


Thanks to Jorge Oyhenard from www.tallerwebmaster.com, we are able to publish on our site this excellent mini course on PHP and MySQL. This hands-on course will teach you from scratch how to build a web application, in this case a Real State website. However we need to warn you, the essential controls and a detailed database analysis that are necessary for any real life application haven’t been included.

The course is composed of the following posts to be published weekly:


  1. AppServ installation – PHP, Apache, MySQL: a tool that will leave your computer ready to create dynamic webpages with PHP, Apache and MySQL
