    googling it will help you find some solutions, but you must be ready to learn.nothing good comes easy.if you need it, make plans for it

    buy a php book from amazon, try to install php on your computer. try to make a simple helloworld page using php. once you know that expand to more difficult stuff like reading and updating database, session etc.. Then you will start to understand php. I don't think you need to know all about php to use it, so you can use that knowledge and when you need to some advanced stuff then google it and you might find solution to your problem.

    I'd start with html dude.

    Youre asking about php when you have trouble using google and thats troubling in itself.

    a search for "free php tutorials" lists 44 million results, pick one

    MySQL and Dreamweaver? What do you mean? I think you should learn more about PHP. PHP, MySQL is different things. Dreamweaver is just a tools.

    If you want to try PHP, you need web server. Example, Apache. MySQL is a database (SQL = structure query language), and you must install MySQL server to use that. You could install complete package PHP, MySQL, Apache. My favourite is AppServ.

    Try to make simple site from scratch, write code using notepad++ (it makes easier) but don't use Dreamweaver (if you want to understand PHP code well, don't use tools like Dreamweaver). Just make simple "echo" String, after done try to make loop, etc.

    Good luck

    no no no no no!!!

    Firstly, php and mysql are very different, one is a database and the other is a web application programming language.

    they work together when you use php to query the database you have created in mysql.

    Dreamweaver is a tool for building webpages/ web application.

    its not a language but has support for various langaes such as php, javascript etc

    you cannot use dreamweaver for mysql on its own, however you can use dreamweaver to write queries in your webapplication to interface with your mysql database.

    in order to use php, you would need a webserver that supports it, such as lighttpd, nginx or apache.

    php is primarily used on apache webservers which normally runs on linux servers.

    But you can install a lamp stack on your windows machine using something called wamp which would install apache, php and mysql

    as I suggested before, I think you should start with html

    now its your turn to talk nonsense.

    so by analyzing php code and not understanding what functions, arrays or variables are, you going to figure it out?

    No, there are some great free php tutorials out there. I even stumbled upon a 12 year old giving lessons! Think about what YOU were doing at 12, and this kid goes on about this language and that.

    I know you were looking for recommendations but we dont' know your learning style, your internet experience, your familiarity with programming constructs and concepts, etc etc. Only you can tell us these things. Go out and learn the language and return with a review of how great or how awful the experience was. Become an expert in it even? Think it can't be done? Wrong again. It's all on the internet, from the very basics to advanced programming. In this case, Google really is your friend. /rant

    That's how I learnt to code, by picking apart scripts to the point where I started understanding how it worked & after a while eventually opened up O'Reilly's PHP, Javascript & MySQL book and it was a doddle after messing about with code beforehand.
