Well you could take a look at :
http://phphelp.com/article/ there are several articles here that could help you along

http://phphelp.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=14 Occasional tutorials here.

There are also several online tutorials that you could check out. Just google PHP Tutorial. A big one is http://www.w3schools.com/php/default.asp

There are also several books available that are a good resource. If you purchase from : http://astore.amazon.com/phphelpcom-20/ … TF8&node=4
Then this site will benefit as well (It’s the same as going to amazon.com directly, but this site would get a benefit from it).

There are some good places to start

First of all, I don’t know how old you are, but if you really want to become a programmer, you should learn how to figure things out by yourself (and I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of Google before). Trust me, I know.

As for a ‘start from scratch’, I think buying a good manual would be a start. Then try to understand some (simple) premade scripts, such as tagboards, etc. Trial and error is a very good method (it worked for me ;)).
