Free PHP and Oracle Manual is Available

The free Underground PHP and Oracle Manual is hot off the press. Check it out. The OTN team describe it:

"Just starting out with PHP database development, or unsure how to
install PHP and Oracle? This full-length guide (PDF format) includes
everything you need to know (and more)."

We intend to keep this manual updated. We know there are some sections to be smoothed, and one or two gaps to be filled, but we wanted to share the information now because the document is in solid shape.

Update June 16: Thanks for all the positive comments about the book.  At NY PHP Conference, people I respect have congratulated Alison and myself, and given it a positive reception which is very pleasing. Don't forget there is another Oracle manual on PHP - the "2 Day Plus PHP Developer Guide" which can be found on the Oracle XE documentation page.  This is an introductory "let's build a PHP application from scratch" tutorial, which is useful if you've never used PHP before.

Comments:

Great job Chris! I'm sure this manual is going to extremely useful to all the PHP users who are currently using or looking to use Oracle.

Looks like a great work! Surely something I'll keep in my back pocket for the next time I'm looking for that random question to be answered in a PHP/Oracle setup :)
