DevShed has a new tutorial today that's part two in a series looking at working with the combination of PHP and MySQL - "Working with PHP and MySQL".
You'll learn how to select the database, fetch and display data, and more. This article is excerpted from chapter 9 of Learning PHP and MySQL, written by Michele Davis and Jon Phillips.
They start by selecting the database before moving on to the query. With a select query, they grab the information from the books tablw and display it out to the page (fetching with both a mysql_fetch_row and mysql_fetch_array).
