Summary

Summary

Get up to speed on Apache, MySQL, and PHP - in a weekend!

The big day is Monday. The day you get to show off what you know about Apache Web server, MySQL database, and PHP scripting. The problem is, you're not really up to speed. Maybe it's been a while since you installed all three of these technologies. Perhaps you've never used Apache, MySQL, and PHP together. Or maybe you just like a challenge. In any event, we've got a solution for you - Apache, MySQL, and PHP Weekend Crash Course. Open the book Friday evening and on Sunday afternoon, after completing 30 fast, focused sessions, you'll be able to dive right in and begin building dynamic, data-driven sites on either Windows or Linux with all three integrated technologies.
