Well, then you should start with a good book. I personally, recommend Beginning PHP 4 http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/productCd-0764543644.html from WROX Press. ALthough PHP is now up to Version 5, it’s still a good book. I believe someone else on this forum recommended Beginning PHP, Apache, MySQL Web Development http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/productCd-0764557440.html Also from WROX Press.

Either way chose a good book and start from there. Once you have a script you need help with, we will be happy to help you through the bumps.

Finally, I also recommend a quick glance at

i have tried to read up on it before, but i never got it, i learn by likehands on activities like someone telling me hmethign is done, and me doing it


#7

In that case I suggest you try the tutorials on google (especially the topics from Lycos)

Thats how I first started :)


#8

Let me ask one question, Do you understand what PHP is and how it works?

If you don’t understand that, programming in will be next to impossible.


#9

i have no clue, i know HTML pretty well, but that is it…


#10

Well may I suggest you do a little bit of reading first, try starting with a few basic tutorials from google, or get yourself a book such as suggested on the front page
