Hey all,
Can anyone recommend a good tutorial for a php beginner, preferablly specifically on retrieving data from database (mysql) and manipulating datas from mysql (deleting, editing or adding a table) through PHP.
Thanks!

When I was starting out I loved the manual (still do) http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.mysql.php
http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Tutorial.html

Keep in mind, you may see a query you want to perform on MySQL's site, so all you'd have to do is
mysql_query("SELECT * or whatever");

This is alright, not too bad...

Anyways, happy coding... I'm sure others can help you out more

I've just started doing this myself. I downloaded a few Video Training Manuals from http://www.3dbuzz.com

Great resource, goes through everything, creating user accounts in MySQL, creating databases, creating tables, linking into PHP, creating queries and data manipulation. Just sign up and download.

Got any questions that you need answered now? you can email me at skaarjj@email.com, or contact my on ICQ on 68471487...good luck.

Thanks Skaarjj for the link, but where did you find the video training manuals? I searched high and low for it, but couldn't find it.

Well, you have to sign up to their site first, and then log in. When you log in the login section is replaced with another menu, go to the downloads section from there.
