Migrating from MySQL to PostgreSQL
PostgreSQL, often known simply as the “other open-source database” still offers some significant enterprise-level advantages over the very quick MySQL when developing more data-intensive applications. Rick Morris examines the reasons for migrating to PostgreSQL, as well as some of the hurdles that you might encounter along the way.

Introduction to Statistical Charting using PHP
David’s back this month to show us how to use PHP, MySQL, and JpGraph to calulate and display some basic statistics. The concepts introduced here have applications in areas such as monitoring your website’s hits, as well as anticipating future hardware needs.

Foiling Cross-Site Attacks
Following on the heals of David Jorm’s general security article last month, Chris Shiflett explores in depth the topics of cross-site scripting (XSS) and cross-site request forging (CSRF). He explains exactly what these two vulnerabilities are, how they can be exploited, and most importantly how they can be avoided.

An Introduction to GD
GD is–in a word–amazing. The abilities it offers developers range from simple multi-format graphic creation to dynamic re-sizing and re-sampling of images to pixel-by-pixel color modifications. Join Pavel Koutny as he takes you on a whirlwind tour of GD. You’ll come out feeling like an old pro.

Calendars with PHP
As one of the more obscure extensions, PHP’s Calendar extension doesn’t get much attention. Join Eric Brown as he explains this extension, using it to create a dynamic event calendar that seamlessly uses both Hebrew and Gregorian calendar formats.

Integrating PHP in Delphi Applications
As a tool for rapid desktop application development, Delphi is definitely a leader. Imagine, then, the power to be had by integrating the PHP engine into your Delphi applications. Toby Allen takes us through this Delphi component, and explains how to use PHP in a new and very exciting way.
