In attempting to figure out my next PHP Tutorial to post I decided to do another basic tutorial, as it does seem a lot of people want basic PHP tutorials. As such I decided to do a tutorial about how to pull data from MySQL using GET data in PHP while filtering / sanitizing the data.Read the full blog

Recently I had a need to combine multiple MP3 files into one. Looking at the many different MP3 Joiner / combiners I found most of them to be bulky and just not what I was looking for in an MP3 Joiner / Combiner. After doing some digging into the Windows Command Line I came across a flag for a common function, "Copy" that intrigued me. After reading up on the flag of the Copy command in Windows I decided to give it a try with some tests. Where this came about was I copied some Books on CD to my harddrive a while ago (and the CD's have long since been scratched beyond fixing) so now I have about 15 files per chapter for 30 chapters. I would rather combine them into 30 MP3 files instead of the massive amount of files.

Recently I had an inquiry about how I would go about creating a directory in a PHP script using a FORM with POST / GET data. Creating a Directory from a PHP script using PHP is not all that easy and should be done with caution, as you want to make sure that you validate the input and prevent un-wanted characters from being used to create a directory.Read the full blog.

Helping out on forums with PHP problems, perhaps the main issue that I come across is people posting how to fix "Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by". In light of that issue I decided to try and put yet another blog / how to document out there to fix this error, hopefully people come across and find the information I have provided useful.Read the full blog

Looking for a decent MP3 player that is just plug and play (meaning you do not have to have the software to put music on the mp3 player) has been a difficult chore. It seems now a days that companies want you to have their bloated software on your computer to manage your media library. I have always hated having to do that, what if you wanted to grab some music from a friend's computer?Read the full blog

Looking through many tutorials online I come across many outdated user registration and login systems that are being used by users who end up having to update their code just to get the user registration script to work and function properly. Today I decided to write my own version of a very simple User Registration and Login System using PHP and MySQL. The following script and code has been tested under PHP 5.3 and MySQL 5, but should work for any version of PHP and MySQL. Lets start up the mower and get mowing.
