  4. Mastering MySQL 4
    While I am not new to databases, I am new to mysql and always spend the most time learning new syntax, processes and "features". The MySQL manual is very clear but left some questions unanswered for me. Mastering MySQL left me with no such gaps, and the numerous in-depth examples (including output) in this book help clarify commands and proper syntax. The book covers everything from installation to administration and includes syntax and function/operator references. These references are clearly detailed and contain a generous number of examples as well.

  5. Web Database Applications with PHP & MySQL
    Web Database Applications shows Web developers how to build rich Web database applications using two leading open-source technologies, PHP and MySQL. The authors also assume use of the Apache Web server, which is by far the most common PHP scenario. Both PHP and MySQL are introduced from scratch, although this is a fast-paced book best suited to at least intermediate developers.
  6. Web Database Applications with PHP and MySQL
    This book is subtitled Building Effective Database-Driven Web Sites, and I feel it is right on target. This is not a book for someone unfamiliar with programming, but if you have a programming background, the book will get you thinking about web design (system design, not graphic design), as well as PHP and MySQL programming. The book is logically organized into four parts: learning the tools, developing the application logic, a case study and five supporting appendices.
  7. MySQL Bible Book/CD Package
    The book is divided into five parts: Getting Starated with MySQL and Relational Databases; Understanding SQL Through MySQL; MySQL Administration; MySQL Developer Guide; and Advanced and Specialized MySQL Topics. This Bible covers both beginning-level and advanced topics. Topics covered include: introduction to relational database management; installing and configuring MySQL on the Linux, Windows 2000, and Mac OS X operating systems; MySQL security; debugging and repairing MySQL databases and servers; MySQL performance tuning; and developing MySQL applications with Perl and PHP.
  8. MySQL Book Reviews
    We'll review here those texts which are, or claim to be, about MySQL. We try to be current, but we do not always go out and buy the latest edition of every book, especially if we disliked the last edition. We try to be fair, but disclaim responsibility for any errors or omissions.

  10. Mastering phpMyAdmin for Effective MySQL Management 
    Mastering phpMyAdmin approaches the usage of the popular PHP-based database administration application, phpMyAdmin. It is targeted at ?the serious phpMyAdmin user who would like to use this outstanding application to its full power.? It is a compliment to the authors of this hugely popular application to say that there is not much for this book to cover, as the interface of phpMyAdmin is famous for its ease of use.

    As users come to depend on MySQL, they find that they have to deal with issues of reliability, scalability, and performance--issues that are not well documented but are critical to a smoothly functioning site.

    This book is great for anyone getting started with MySQL. The book does an excellent job of helping the reader learn MySQL on both Windows and Linux systems, with most examples being run in tandem across both platforms.

  24. The Bookstore MySQL
    MySQL is one of the most frequently-used databases on the Web. The reasons are manifold, but given that it's free, and in many cases outperforms big-name (and expensive) commercial database systems this is not all that hard to understand. With PHP, which has native support for MySQL and many millions of installations, it forms a hard to beat combination which is provided by many hosting providers. Here you'll find my recommendations for books about MySQL.
  25. Web Database Applications with PHP & MySQL, 2nd Edition
    There are many reasons for serving up dynamic content from a web site: to offer an online shopping site, create customized information pages for users, or just manage a large volume of content through a database. Anyone with a modest knowledge of HTML and web site management can learn to create dynamic content through the PHP programming language and the MySQL database. This book gives you the background and tools to do the job safely and reliably. Web Database Applications with PHP and MySQL, Second Edition thoroughly reflects the needs of real-world applications.
  26. MySQL Database Design and Optimization
    This book focuses on MySQL 4.0/4.1 but also gives consideration to v.3.23 users as well as a nod toward v.5. The layout of each chapter gives a description of the topic of the chapter, followed by the meat of the chapter, a summary and what's next (how the context of this chapter ties into the subject of the next). There are numerous "notes", cautionary flags, tips, screen shots, code examples as well as thoughts from each author that provide explanatory asides to the content. The authors also provide references to other volumes, as needed.
  27. MySQL Stored Procedure Programming
    On a recent visit to O'Reilly I noticed a list of up coming books. There were the usual second edition of this and third edition of that, but among those was a book that looks like it will become a classic. MySQL Stored Procedure Programming is being written by Steven Feuerstein and Guy Harrison, I'll admit to not knowing much about Guy but I'm fully aware of Steven. For those that don't know Steven he's possible the worlds number one expert on Oracle's PL/SQL, having written a number of books which are seen as the standard by which we should all aim for.
  28. MySQL in a Nutshell
    This is the first 'In A Nutshell' book for MySQL from O'Reilly. I usually use 'In A Nutshell' books the way one might use a dictionary or other reference book; a quick look-up of the item you need, and it's back on the shelf. I like that. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy technical book that you can read through, but when you are trying to get your work done, those can be a pain to use for reference. MySQL In A Nutshell starts off with a (very) brief introduction (I like that too), plus a short installation guide and tutorial.
