This text allows readers to gain the core programming knowledge needed to build a database-driven Web site using a step-by-step approach. Each stage of Web site development is carefully explained, from installation to production of the site. The book, based on a course developed by the author, features a carefully constructed organization that shows readers how to begin creating Web pages, and then incrementally add greater functionality as they progress through the text.
Brief chapters, each focusing on one core theme, are designed to allow readers to learn at their own pace. Among the key chapters is one dedicated to teaching how to install a Web server with all the required modules to run the scripts presented in the book.
With its step-by-step approach, this book is ideally suited for anyone who wants to learn how to create complete Web sites. No previous knowledge of any programming language is needed. For experienced Web designers, the book will bring their programming skills to a higher level by enabling them to create dynamic pages linked to a database.
