PHP 5
fast&easy

By: Julie Meloni

So far this has been one of the better books that i have read. it has alot of examples and has actually inspired me to write some of my own unique code. Though the book has some faults in the Code, it makes up for this by the layout of the code and the commenting of all the lines of code so that the user knows exactly the what and the how. It does lack in the section however, of the how to correctly install and run PHP5. still though a good book and recomended read for everyone.

In my experience, installing PHP is only hard when you do it for the first time. After you stumble through the first installation, it's quite easy ;-).

ahh your so right, but this was the alpha install of PHP5, he gave no instructions on how to install the alpha version. he gave the generic instructions for PHP4.
