Ok. I'm a bit rusty. A friend has asked me to help update and manage their site. Years ago (geez, it feels like almost a lifetime) I did some dabbling and such into PHP and built a few things. Now the site is still PHP 4 and MySQL 5 (I think). It is using VBulletin (no, not a security site). I'm a bit old fashioned and prefer reading paper than screen so..
Anyone found any recent PHP/MySQL books to be of benefit, both general and security-specific oriented?

Sam's Teach Yourself PHP/MySQL books are good for a refresher course.
Also entering the following into google proves valuable.
John Wiley & Sons - MySQL Enterprise Solutions.pdf
John Wiley & Sons - MySQL PHP Database Applications.pdf
PHP4 - Teach Yourself PHP4 In 24 Hours.pdf
PHP And SQL Security.pdf
Sams Teach Yourself MySQL In 21 Days.pdf
APress - The Definitive Guide to MySQL, Second Edition.chm
John Wiley & Sons - PHP5 And MySQL Bible.zip
O'Reilly - MySQL Pocket Reference.chm
Premier Press - Php.MySQL Programming for the absolute begin.chm
Wrox - Beginning MySQL.zip
Wrox - Beginning PHP5, Apache And MySQL Web Development.zip

Uh.. I was looking for personal recommendations of books used by people. And as I said, I prefer paper/hardcopy, not online. I have no problem paying for what I believe is worth it.

Well when I started with PHP from a C++ background, I went with Sams teach yourself php4 in 24 hours and then MySQL in 21 Days, later to discover there is one in the Sam's series that covers both.
Sams series is very good for a good grounding but not for more advanced stuff.
