Unmistakably, the advent of Open Source technologies has made a considerable impact upon the IT sector in recent years. Perhaps the repercussions of this impact resonate no more loudly than in the database sector, where Open Source databasing products offer users a comparable alternative to the costly commercial solutions available on the market today. One such Open Source database enjoying enormous popularity is MySQL. Offering very fast and reliable data management, MySQL has come to be depended on by a number of the World's largest and most respected organizations for handling mission critical information.In a successful effort to tackling those issues most important to the reader, Kofler not only concentrates on the MySQL database server itself, but also demonstrates how it can be used in conjunction with various other technologies in order to Web-enable the reader's database information.
Kofler's MySQL introduces the many facets of MySQL, guiding the reader through installation, configuration, and subsequent implementation of the popular database server. Intermingling MySQL instruction with valuable general database design philosophy, MySQL proves to be an irreplaceable resource for MySQL novices and experts alike.
