Try checking out the Man pages and How-To's.......usually my first step when wanting to learn something new about Linux. Also do a Google search:

MySql + Linux: results 1,070,000 hits

PHP + Linux results 2,150,000 hits

Search the forums here and you may come up with a wealth of info.

Good luck............. RT*M

first of all, let me say: Good for you!!! php and mysql are awesome and i love working with them.

to be honest, i found the sam's teach yourself php4 in 24 hours was a great resource. it's how i learned and now i write the occassional article on php and mysql. once you move past that book (it won't take you long) then i would recommend Core PHP Programming. i also use the online resource http://www.phpbuilder.com/. they have a ton of stuff up there and also some great reading.

as for mysql, when you're using php what you should really focus on is sql itself. php comes with all the necessary functions that make dealing with the mysql daemon itself very easy. just buy a short tutorial book (i prefer to buy books when it comes to programming since they're so much easier to reference frequently).

good luck! :-)

mysql

under Redhat 7.1 or 7.2
enter at prompt: locate mysql

look for something like:

file:/usr/share/doc/mysql-3.23.41/manual.html

enter this into browser location window

best to learn SQL first (if you don't know it) from a book ISBN (0072118458)...I created the sql to create the tables in this book so one can practice. I could email these to you.

Redhat 7.2 is worth upgrading to

I am trying to get mysql running on 7.2

also www.mysql.com
