PHP and MySQL for A2 Computing projects

In the past, many of my students have made successful project using a combination of PHP and MySQL. This year, all three of my students are using it in some capacity and one has combined it with jQuery. I have been meaning to write a full workbook for a long time and I have finally got around to it:

This booklet is written to give to students directly, but it would also be suitable for teachers wishing to improve their skills or learn a new language.

Just in case you are not familiar with HTML and CSS (which is a pre-requisite for this booklet) you may want to look at my HTML, CSS and jQuery booklet first:

    Thank you (*n) for the resources – really most useful / a god-send for me new teaching to A2 / web-apps.

    The only thing I had a problem with was guide page 12, Basic PHP – I think you could put some semi-colons into the selection section etc. as they are crucial.

    While I am about it, as we cannot use memory sticks and cannot install xampp in school, have you any idea if this would work on aws virtual machines?
