    I'm using the lynda.com php essential training course, and the infiniteskills php and mySQL course. I can recommend them both.

    An extensive book to check out is "Learning PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, and CSS 2nd Edition"
    I think it's that one at least.

    I don't know php but i know other languages like C and Python and the best advice is pratice, pratice, pratice. Use the code you are developing. Get started with small exercices and progress from there. Just code a lot and you will learn a lot. Reading the code and understanding it is one thing but beeing able to code alone is another level.

    Good luck

    I have learned all the basics in W3schools and take off from there. So my suggestion is to go with w3schools but also refer some sites php.net and infiniteskills

    My suggestion is to think of something simple and worth doing and start doing it.
    Then, as you find the answer, add more ideas to it.

    e.g.
    collect email through form submit.

    when you done that, you can expand from there
    - can you split the first, last name
    - can you save the name into database
    - do you know where the submitter comes from
    - can you let the submitter submits the form without leaving the page and show an acknowledgement

    with more and more idea you implement, you get better and of course, your work don't go to waste

    just my 2 cents.

    As someone earlier said I would suggest that you think of what you want to build first.

    Then when you have a goal you will move further from that point and learn more and more and more... As while you are going you will need to learn how to do new things and you will then need to find out how to do it and again learn new things and improve your PHP knowledge.

    Together with PHP MySQL goes almost naturally, and at least basics of HTML / CSS will be required so that you can do at least some output.

    Other then that IMHO ultimate resource for PHP is php.net when you get to that part.

    Happy learning!
    Automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency!

    If you want to be a better programmer, you can try to solve the problems in "Project Euler".

    You can also try to build something with the help of MVC frameworks like Laravel.

    Happy Hacking !

    Video tutorials are great (only if you want to get the gist of the language). Thenewboston if you're completely beginning. I do not suggest you take his courses seriously, but just as a light introduction to the langauge.

    There are a ton of tutorials on Youtube that will help you get started.

    Also do checkout CodeAcedemy, I've heard a lot of good things about them.

    I'm sure you will find tutorials / etc on the net... PHP is easier to learn when you have a project in mind.
    Get an idea, and start exploring the web after what you need.

    Another advice, personally, the best way to code is to use 2 screens, when one has the code editor (IDE) and the second has the documentation opened to let you quickly search function names, etc.
    For PHP I use chrome' addon: php docs-to-go, it does not need any internet connection, so you can browse the manual when having no internet (on trains, etc).
    Good luck!

    I'm only using W3schools and php.net, but there are a lot of good tutorials out there.
    Like some people said earlier, the best way to get your skill to the next level is to keep using everything that you know and keep creating something, let your imagination go wild, see every problem as a challenge and work around hard to find the solution.

    That is what I have done on learning PHP and the learning will never stop

    Php.net and w3 schools for the theory, google for reference.

    and most importantly, pick some small projects in php based on whatever interests you, and then build them from scratch - that's the best way to learn IMHO.
