This is the book I’ve been using to put this site back together!
All you need is some basic SQL, of which the book contains plenty of examples, and you should be up and running in no time.
Wrox are starting to get quite a tidy range of manuals on the go to suit web professionals. I’mquite looking forward to their up coming WAP programming book. Until then the PHP should keep me busy and get this site working a bit better in addition!
