MySQL - PHP Questions

How can I learn more about using MySQL with PHP ?
There are numerous resources available on the Internet. We have found a couple of good tutorials:
  • WebMonkey has a good tutorial on how to use the power of PHP with the MySQL database. It includes code samples and step by step instructions. Your can read this article here.

    NOTE : To connect to your own database, the mysql_connect function should look similar to this,
    $db = mysql_connect(" server101.com","db_user_name","db_password");
    The database you connect to is the database name you have created through the Members area.
    e.g. mysql_select_db("db_name",$db);
