    The best way of course would be to have a person (like a tutor) sit with you
    and go over examples of scripts online. But for you, that may not be possible.

    Having a previous programming background is very helpful .. such as C++, BASIC, Perl
    and even Javascripting. The experience of thinking in terms of "a program", with
    steps, functions, variables, and program flow. If you don't have that experience, it
    takes a while to get your mind into the "programming mode".

    You should first get a place to work with PHP. You'll need a website where you
    can use FTP to upload/download your scripts so you can program, edit, and test them.
    You can't do it offline on your computer unless you have a server.

    Buying books is OK, but not necessary.
    Google is the best place to find easy PHP tutorials.

    The tutorials you'll find assume you have an understanding of files, directories, paths,
    file types, variable types, etc. You also have to have an understanding of which
    versions of PHP to deal with. Many online tutorials are very old, and we're already
    approaching PHP6, so you have to be a bit careful.

    What city do you live in?
    Maybe there's someone that can teach you in person, or maybe a class at a school?

    Hi, the best advice i can give, is to get your hands on a well built site with lots of php functions and a db dump......

    and study it.
    a book is good, but it requires allot of paitiance,
    the benifits of playing with some one elses work is your constantly doing something and you can tweak and build things ontop of the existing work as your learning.
    just look around the internet for some one whose giving away zip files of sites etc on theyer website, pleanty of people do it to help others learn, and simply so people can use theyer work.
    but if you go for a book , you should go for php & mysql for dummies!

    youl probally find that floating around the internet too.

    need any help , lemme know
