A PHP Experience Update

I finally tried to work a little bit today on the PHP mailing list for CCSC:SE. I followed the directions for editing the config.php file, inserted all the data Hunter had given me, and oops! It couldn’t find the database. This exchange of email followed: Julia wrote: Okay, Hunter, maybe I’m just an idiot. I …

43 Things — On “learn PHP and MySQL”

Progress so far: bought two books online—the Visual Quickpro guide came today, Learning PHP 5 is on the way. Went to http://www.php.net/ and downloaded some tutorial materials.
