Probably the best start... the official Web site =)

www.onlamp.com has something on the subject too.

There a plenty of good books, Wrox, O'Reilly, others.

Oh yes, our famous friend, www.google.com

.... all just for a starter. Should keep you busy learning PHP for a looooong
time ;-)

What do you already know about programming?

Are you familiar to C or Java or any Basic dialect?

Do you know what happens when a browser (client) calls
a server (http-server).

tell us more about your existing knowledge within programming.

My advice is think about what you want php to do for you and try to do it.
If you can't find the code on php.net, ask here

Go to PHP manual:


and start reading from the beginning. By the time you get through
Part I ("Getting Started"), you will have a pretty good idea of what
you can accomplish with PHP. Then select a small project and
implement it in PHP using the manual as your guide. Alternatively,
get someone else's simple script at hotscripts.com or wherever else
scripts can be found and figure out how it works or, better yet,
how you can modify it to better suit your taste.
