Good Books/Dev Tools Recommendation on Website Development w/PHP?

P: n/a
Can someone please recommend some good books on developing web sites
(pretty much from scratch) running PHP and the necessary/usual
components required, such as MySQL, Apache and etc?

As well, does PHP have some good IDE I can use? Any books, online
resources or tutorials on developing and getting a web site off the
ground using PHP would be much appreciated. TIA!

Now find 'em yourself, this question has been asked and asked and asked
again so many times. Put some effort in _yourself_ instead of being lazy
and expecting others to do things for you.

Then... learn to post properly!

Regards,

Ian

For installing PHP/MySQL/Apache on Windows, have a look at
http://www.sokkit.net/

A fairly simple CMS that you might study for ideas and/or to get the basics is
http://phpmysite.sf.net

Also want

as a reference (don't try to read it cover-to-cover :)

The best IDE (java IDE as well, best CVS integration, many other editors
including XML/XSLT editors). This is the page for the plugin.

A good framework also helps :)

Someone once said that the people behind these books are the ones that
didn't cut it as programmers...

Well I have to admit, there is no excuse for those sorts of errors. None
the less, I seemed to have been able to gain a very large amount of
truly useful information out of it. I actually have quite a few PHP
books and I have checked out many in the bookstore. I still think this
is the most useful PHP book I have ever found, dispite some elementry
code errors. If this were a beginner's book, I think those errors would
pose a more serious problem. But given the coverage of useful topics,
there's no point in throwing the baby out with the bath water.
