I'm trying to understand how this all works, but stumbling into too many technical walls to piece it all together. I'm wondering if someone could give a concise but expansive answer as to the process of how mysql, php, xhtml, and css all come together. Here's what I know:
php=serverside language (right?)
xhtml=html but spiffy
Other than this, I don't know much. To make a vague question a little more concrete, "Briefly summarize everything that happens from the moment I hit the publish button to when a user finishes reading it."
I know this may be a comprehensive question, but I'm really looking for a concise answer, so please don't waste your breath...fingers. Thanks.
