As the world's most popular, general purpose, open source scripting language, PHP
is frequently used with MySQL
to create high-traffic, mission-critical applications. This indispensable book shares proven, author-tested best practices and expert techniques that can be applied to even the most demanding MySQL-driven PHP
apps. You'll explore ways to extend MySQL
with user-defined functions, write PHP
extensions, and solve problems when PHP
alone are not enough and other techniques or third-party tools are necessary.
