Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8 (Paperback)

Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8

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!)
