Now that you've used PHP with MySQL and SQLite, you probably think you know everything you need to get started with PHP programming. In fact, you might even be thinking of cutting down your visits to this site altogether, giving up this series for something flashier and cooler...
Uh-uh. Big mistake.
You see, while built-in database support makes programming with PHP easy, it isn't the only thing that makes PHP so popular. An easy-to-use XML API and new exception handling mechanism (in PHP 5.x), support for pluggable modules, and built-in session management are just some of the many other features that make PHP rock.
