If you can get hold of the first edition (it's currently second edition) of this:
Teach Yourself PHP in 24 Hours (1st Edition), Matt Zandstra, SAMS that's a really good book just for the last 2 hours which goes into detail about creating a web portal for multi-users to register/login/logout/goto members page etc using PHP, MySQL and php sessions. I adapted the code in that book here: http://simpleauth.munk.nu/ for a very basic tutorial codebase (basically more comments than code:). If you already have the basics down, a good intermediate level book is: PHP Developer's Cookbook, Sterling Hughes, SAMS (I don't have any affiliation with SAMS, this is just a coincidence!!!) This book has lots of instant recipes for getting specific things done, as well as covering the use of the PEAR PHP class-based application framework. -- Jez http://www.munk.nu/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
