Most of this stuff is actually just SQL and has little to do with PHP.  So
look for an SQL tutorial.  From the PHP side all you need to know is
mysql_connect(), mysql_select_db(), mysql_query() and mysql_fetch_row().''

All queries are sent to the database via mysql_query().  It doesn't matter
to PHP if you are adding, deleting, modifying, searching, sorting,
filtering, or whatever.  You just put the SQL code in the mysql_query()
