Hi - I hope this is a good forum to put this question.
I have been doing web design previously with MS Front Page. I have some understanding of html and java script. I am now trying to install a phpbb forum and Word Press blogs. I wondered if anyone could suggest some good books that would help get me started in understanding php and MySLQ - particularly in how it relates to phpBB and Word Press - as well as Dreamhost.
I am pretty good at trying to stumble through and get the job done - but I would prefer to understand what I am doing and why. Looking at reviews on Amazon.com - I am totally unsure which books would be appropriate and good to start with. I am a beginner - but very goal oriented.
Thanks in advance for any help. And I am always open to any hearing of any web sites people have found help also.
