PHP MySQL: Introduction

This entry is part 1 of 17 in the series PHP & MySQL

Now that we have learnt some basic PHP and gone through CRUD functions in SQL, we will now move to learning how to retrieve and store data into database using PHP.

It’s been said that PHP works very well with MySQL.

That is mainly because of the many functions available in PHP for manupulating MySQL database.

We will use this new mysqli class in this tutorial.
