I want to learn a ton about computers.
I'm really interested in internet stuff such as packets and tcp/ip protocols and whatnot. I prefer books to learn from. What would I look up as a book title to learn about this?

Also, I want to learn about computer hardware like motherboards and hard drives etc. What would that be called?

And, I want to learn about servers like how they work and how they're constructed and so on. Would that fall under the internet stuff?

And lastly I want to learn about setting up databases for online information. Like if I made a website and had people make an account for that website. Is this what mySQL is? If not, what is mySQL and what am I thinking of?

1. You can search for books by topic, therefore searches for 'internet protocols', 'tcp/ip', plus 'books' in the search term will work. The first result from google while using the search term 'tcp/ip books' returns this.

2 and 3) It is called machine organization or computer organization. Again from Amazon.com

3. MySql is a specific implementation of a relational database. You are talking about SQL, which means Structured Query Language.

There are thousands and thousands of pages online where you can do research.
