Default What Next (with the ultimate goal of pHp/mySQL)?

Hello wrox,
I just completed "Beginning JavaScript 4th Edition," and preceded it with "Beginning HTML, XHTML, CSS and JavaScript". Though I am by no means an expert in any of the above, I feel I command XHTML and CSS pretty well, feel much better about JavaScript after the aforementioned refreshers, and have a passing familiarity with pHp (though it has been a long, long while since I've done anything with it).

I have many books in the WROX series waiting to be read; I am simply at a loss as to where I should go next. I was wondering if anyone could advise me--keeping in mind that my TRUE interest and ultimate goal is database manipulation and management, which has always equated with pHp and MySQL in my mind. I have the following books ready to go:

"Beginning XML"
"Professional Ajax"
"JavaScript and CSS Development with JQuery"
"JavaScript for Web Developers"
"JavaScript Frameworks"

All of which are WROX and, to my knowledge, all the latest editions (with the possible exception of Hunter's "Beginning XML"... it is copyrighted 2000 and was gifted to me used). Am I ready for pHp / MySQL? If not, is there a particular path I should take to it? I'm willing to buy more books...

Don't know if this is the right place for this post, but I couldn't find anywhere better, so I'm taking a shot. Any advice anyone could offer would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Thanks kindly.
