a good tutorial book for php/mysql

Hi all,

I need a recomendation on a good book to learn PHP/MYSQL.

I want to learn php with mysql.
The problem is that I don't have any knowledge on mysql and generally
in relational databases.
I have an experience in programming with jsp, JS, HTML etc.

Can you please recommend me on a good book / sites which I can use to
learn the above?
I prefer a book that you KNOW is a good one for beginners like me.

Thanks a lot,

Danny

A good PHP book is http://www.hudzilla.org/phpbook/ (free online
version) which is also available in dead-tree format from O'Reilly.

Other good sources are

http://www.w3schools.com/PHP/default.asp
http://devzone.zend.com/node/view/id/627
http://www-128.ibm.com/developerwork...y/os-php-read/

And of course the official PHP manual, which is very good as a
reference book - particularly the user submitted comments - if a bit
weak on the introductory stuff:

I just ran through the php exam on this site. I was intrigued by
question 31:

Joins are fastest when done using which data type:

INT
JOIN
FLOAT
INDEX
CHAR
VARCHAR
CACHE
None of the above

Since when are INDEX and CACHE datatypes?

Ah heck, Paul, you've got to have some answers which are too crazy to be
believed! It separates the people who know things from those who are
just guessing :-).

But that's a PHP exam? It's a SQL question!
