Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8 PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8 free pdf In this book, you'll learn how to: Install, configure, and troubleshoot a testing environment with PHP/MySQL and Apache or IIS Learn the fundamentals of PHP and good database design Use Dreamweaver 8 server behaviors to create robust dynamic applications that validate user input for greater security and reliability Incorporate live XML feeds into your web pages with PHP and Dreamweaver 8's new XSL Transformation server behavior Download and apply a suite of custom-built PHP functions designed exclusively for this book Want to add the power of a database to your websites? Build online forms that send feedback straight to your inbox? Incorporate live news feeds and XML data into your web pages? This book shows you how to do all that and more. Dreamweaver 8 takes a lot of the hard work out of integrating a database into your websites, but it can't do everything. So instead of just giving you a series of instructions to click this and click that, this book helps you understand what's going on in the background. As a result, you're more likely to remember and to get it right. Most books on PHP concentrate on code and throw all design considerations out the window. This one is different.It makes use of Dreamweaver 8's vastly improved CSS rendering, and shows you how to build a site that's smart in both senses of the word. It looks good and is intelligent too. You'll learn how to change the entire look of the site, using PHP to serve up different stylesheets each month. You'll also build a contact form protected against email injection attacks. All of Dreamweaver's PHP server behaviors are put through their paces, and you'll even make some custom server behaviors that will come in useful on any site you create. Two chapters take you through the setup process with step-by-step instructions for both Windows and Mac OS X, helping you make the right choices: Apache or IIS? Remote or local testing? There are even instructions on how to set up virtual hosts on your own computer. And in the unlikely event that things go wrong, there's plenty of troubleshooting advice too. In this book we look specifically at using Dreamweaver's built-in server behaviors to build dynamic web sites using PHP and MySQL, the world's most popular open source server-side language and database server combination, which are both reliable, powerful, and open source (and therefore free to use!) This latest version of Dreamweaver includes more powerful support for PHP and MySQL than ever before, and we'll show you how to make this work for you. No previous experience of PHP or MySQL is necessary to use this book. Examples built throughout the book include a content management system, and an online image gallery. All examples are designed to meet modern usability requirements and be web standards compliant. Summary of Contents: Introduction Chapter 1: So, You Want to Build Dynamic Sites?

About David Powers

David Powers is an Adobe Community Expert for Dreamweaver and author of a series of highly successful books on PHP, including PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy and Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8. As a professional writer, he has been involved in electronic media for more than 30 years, first with BBC radio and television and more recently with the Internet. His clear writing style is valued not only in the English-speaking world- several of his books have been translated into Spanish and Polish. What started as a mild interest in computing was transformed almost overnight into a passion, when David was posted to Japan in 1987 as BBC correspondent in Tokyo. With no corporate IT department just down the hallway, he was forced to learn how to fix everything himself. When not tinkering with the innards of his computer, he was reporting for BBC television and radio on the rise and collapse of the Japanese bubble economy. Since leaving the BBC to work independently, he has built up an online bilingual database of economic and political analysis for Japanese clients of an international consultancy. When not pounding the keyboard writing books or dreaming of new ways of using PHP and other programming languages, David enjoys nothing better than visiting his favorite sushi restaurant. He has also translated several plays from Japanese.
