    Hi Mr. Harwani,
    I just get your book “PhoneGap Build Developing Cross Platform Mobile Applications in the Cloud”. However, the program codes inside the book couldn’t be found. Would you get the sample codes available for download? I think that it would be very useful to learn the programs if these can be checked out and tested by the readers. Thank you.

    Hello Bintu,
    I am reading your book “Build an Ecommerce Site in a Weekend”. Having some difficulty with the database and signup form.

    It appears as though the connection is OK according to checkconnection.php.
    “Successfully connected with the MySQL server and shopping database is opened”

    However when I go through the signup process, I get the following:
    “Please, check the server connection.”

    I noticed your book indicates the following on page 50:
    “■ Note php and MySQL version 5 support is no longer bundled with the standard php distribution, hence you need to explicitly configure php to take advantage of this extension.”

    I am using the most recent version of MAMP. So I have to assume that I need to take your advice from the note on page 50. But I am unclear as to how to make this configuration. Can you lend me a helping hand? I am looking forward to completing your book before I begin my web development class at Denver University.

    Very much looking forward to your reply.
    Colten Rowland
