Hi,

I am beginner php programmer and want to develop some dynamic web
pages using PHP and MySQL. At this point I am so confused on what
method to use. AFAIK there are four methods
==========
mysql
mysqli
PEAR::DB
PEAR::MDB2
==========
Examples in some books are based on "mysql". Some recommends mysqli.
Some recommend using PEAR DB. When I browsed PEAR website, DB module
is obsolete now and new NDB2 is the latest.

my problem is I am new to all of this and don't know where to start.
I am using FC5 and PHP5 is intalled.
My question is:
=================
Where do I start?
Should I start with mysql and progress to PEAR MDB2 or straight go
ahead with MDB2?
=================

Any recommendation appriciated.
