Default PHP & MySQL books

The last I heard Wrox had gone under, but by all accounts the different books have been sold off. Could you tell me which publisher has bought the PHP & MySQL books.

Thanks in advance
Dai

Dear Dai,
Wiley purchased Beginning PHP 4. The book is in our current catalog at wrox.com but we are unable to make direct sales at this time at wrox.com. We are also looking to revise this book soon for PHP 5. Also, our open source editor Debra Williams Cauley is looking into several PHP and MySQL topics to publish now into Wrox Press.

Thanks for your interest!

As a suggestion Wrox should do a remake of Kevin Yank's book "Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP & MySQL" , published by Sitepoint.

The book was horrible and an insult to everyone. Charging $35.00 for content that is better presented on forums like this and tutorial sites like DevShed. When someone forks out 35.00 for a computer - related book we expect the same standard of quality that Wrox and Sams publishing have established.

Best Regards,
Dan Jallits
