Donation center by using PHP ,MySQL & Paypal API

Here is a nice article whihc i’ve got recently by which you can easily build a Donation center by using PHP ,MySQL & Paypal API.PayPal provides numerous APIs and integration options for third-party developers. One of these is the Donation button, which you can generate straight from PayPal?s site and include directly into your pages. Conversion rate for these buttons is typically minimal, but the right incentive can make a big difference.

Monitoring MySQL with mytop

Mytop is a tool written in Perl for monitoring MySQL databases. Similar to how top monitors system processes, mytop monitors MySQL threads and the database?s overall performance, allowing system administrators or developers to get some insight on how applications are interacting with a database.

Mytop is included in the Fedora repositories, so it is just a yum install away. If you are using Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS, mytop is available via the RPMForge third-party repositories. Other distributions may provide mytop as a package, or you can install it from source by downloading it from the Web site.

Introduction to PHP

PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor is a widely used, general-purpose scripting language that was originally designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages. For this purpose, PHP code is embedded into the HTML source document and interpreted by a web server with a PHP processor module, which generates the web page document. As a general-purpose programming language, PHP code is processed by an interpreter application in command-line mode performing desired operating system operations and producing program output on its standard output channel. It may also function as a graphical application. PHP is available as a processor for most modern web servers and as standalone interpreter on most operating systems and computing platforms.

PHP was originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1995[1] and has been in continuous development ever since. The main implementation of PHP is now produced by The PHP Group and serves as the de facto standard for PHP as there is no formal specification.[2] PHP is free software released under the PHP License.

Introduction to MySQL

MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases. MySQL is officially pronounced /maɪˌɛskjuːˈɛl/ (“My S-Q-L”), but is often pronounced /maɪˈsiːkwəl/ (“My Sequel”). It is named for original developer Michael Widenius’s daughter My.

The MySQL development project has made its source code available under the terms of the GNU General Public License, as well as under a variety of proprietary agreements. MySQL is owned and sponsored by a single for-profit firm, the Swedish company MySQL AB, now owned by Sun Microsystems, a subsidiary of Oracle Corporation.

Members of the MySQL community have created several forks such as Drizzle and MariaDB. Both forks were in progress before the Oracle acquisition (Drizzle was announced 8 months before the Sun acquisition).

Free-software projects that require a full-featured database management system often use MySQL. Such projects include (for example) WordPress, phpBB, Drupal and other software built on the LAMP software stack. MySQL is also used in many high-profile, large-scale World Wide Web products including Wikipedia, Google and Facebook.
