The book supports the new version of Dreamweaver, a huge potential market! This book is fairly unique within that market - a book purely focused on PHP web development with Dreamweaver that teaches professional techniques, and doesn't treat readers like idiots (it isn't aimed at the "dummies" audience.) Dreamweaver has over 3 million users worldwide.

David Powers is an Adobe Community Expert for Dreamweaver and author of a series of highly successful books on PHP, including PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy and Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8. As a professional writer, he has been involved in electronic media for more than 30 years, first with BBC radio and television and more recently with the Internet. His clear writing style is valued not only in the English-speaking world; several of his books have been translated into Spanish and Polish. What started as a mild interest in computing was transformed almost overnight into a passion, when David was posted to Japan in 1987 as BBC correspondent in Tokyo. With no corporate IT department just down the hallway, he was forced to learn how to fix everything himself. When not tinkering with the innards of his computer, he was reporting for BBC television and radio on the rise and collapse of the Japanese bubble economy. Since leaving the BBC to work independently, he has built up an online bilingual database of economic and political analysis for Japanese clients of an international consultancy. When not pounding the keyboard writing books or dreaming of new ways of using PHP and other programming languages, David enjoys nothing better than visiting his favorite sushi restaurant. He has also translated several plays from Japanese.


Dreamweaver is Macromedia's best-selling web design/development environment, which has in excess of 3 million users worldwide. The new version of it is available later on this year. 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.) The new version of Dreamweaver includes even more powerful support for PHP and MySQL. David Powers first takes you through the new version of Dreamweaver, and how PHP and MySQL fit into it, then looks in-depth at setting up your work environment - installing PHP, MySQL, and the Apache web server, making sure they are all working together, and setting up a new web site via Dreamweaver. He then goes to work, using several tutorials and real world examples including topics such as PHP essentials (knowing what PHP code looks like,) working with forms, designing and implementing effective MySQL databases, debugging and troubleshooting, creating dynamic navigation, login, and search functionality Examples built throughout the book include a content management system, and an online image gallery. All examples are designed to meet modern usability requirements and be web standards compliant. No previous experience of PHP or MySQL is necessary to use this book. TOC:Dreamweaver and dynamic sites.- Getting the work environment ready.- A first taste of PHP.- Working with forms.- Adding the power of a database.- Building a random quote generator.- Working with multiple tables.- Restricting access to your site.- Making your site searchable.- Creating an online image gallery.- App A Dealing with error messages and troubleshooting.- App B Using languages other than English in MySQL.- App C Essential MySQL maintenance.

Confession time. When I first started developing dynamic websites with Dreamweaver UltraDev 4, I made a complete mess of things. I believed rather naively that Dreamweaver would do it all for me, and that all I needed to do was point and click. The first couple of projects actually went well, giving me a false sense of security. As soon as I attempted anything that didn't fit into the same p- tern as the basic tutorials, things began to go horribly wrong. Even though I've always been happy working with code, one look inside Code view sent shivers up my spine. Part of the problem was that I didn't have a clear grasp of database structure or of what server-side technology really involved. The other part of the problem was that I was treating Dreamweaver as a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) program. If I saw something wasn't in the right place, I just highlighted it in Design view and hit DELETE. What I didn't realize was that this left behind messy code that caused even the simplest of applications to break. The more I deleted, the worse it got. I don't want that to happen to you. That's why I wrote this book.
