If I Wanted To Upgrade A Site Created With This Book, Which Book Should I Get?

Recommended Posts

Love the book, created a site back in 2010 based off of everything I learned!  It has been running great for years now, but after I recent server migration I realized that (of course) a number of things are no longer current or "best practice".

 

So for someone in this situation, what would you suggest?  Just get the most recent copy of the book?  Is there a guide somewhere on "What is new" between versions?  Is there another book?

 

Thanks in advance, and thanks for everything!  Literally everything I know I learned from Larry Ullman!

Thanks so much for the nice words on the book! I really appreciate it! I'm glad to hear you've had some success with what you've learned and thanks again for sharing.

 

The second edition of the book is pretty old and I couldn't say off the top of my head what the differences would be in the book or the technologies since then. Except to say there have been a lot! Not to be greedy, but the 5th edition just came out, so I would recommend reading it. If money is an issue or you'd rather not (for whatever reason), then I start by looking at the "changes in PHP/MySQL since..." pages at the respective sites, plus reading up on HTML5.

 

Thanks again!

Thanks again Larry for providing an amazing resource.  I'll defiantly be picking up the 5th edition of your book, I owe you AT LEAST that for all the use I've gotten out of the 2nd.  You should see it, I've practically worn it out!
