References in order of usefulness:
- The MySQL website- a beautiful thing. Docs are excellent if you know what you are looking for already. Bad for beginners..
- MySQL by Paul DuBois, New Riders Press- slightly out of date, but still very useful
- MySQL and mSQL, O'Reiily Press.- More of an introduction to databases than a reference, stiil, not bad. Covers sql in general, and many interface methods ( php, etc.)
- MySQL, Springer Press- looks good in the bookstore, havent read it yet.
