I Want to Learn PHP.

Hello,
I am Just two months months old in web designing and i am really eager to learn how to develop a professional website.

Please i need help on PHP. i have gone to tizag.com to learn PHP and i have at least know the basic foundation and usefulness of PHP.

Please i need material that will teach me PHP well. Also can someone discuss here in this forum the techniques involved in collecting information sent by my site users on the site (like the contact form) either through email or any other available means.

Thank You Very Much

W3schools is good, so is going to php.net and reading the manual (that's how I originally learned).

I'm going to be writing articles on Keenotes about PHP programming. Eventually I plan to make videos to go with all of the articles, too, so you'll be able to listen/watch the examples (which is really convenient if you have two monitors).

I think all of the above are good but studying bits and pieces gets boring after awhile. When that begins to happen install xampp or one of the other local systems, find some simpler scripts, run them then dissect how they make things happen. You absolutely do not want to start your dissection with any of the commercial programs like WordPress because it will way too hard to follow the unremarked code. You want older scripts where the html and php are interwoven.

Maybe I got weird learning process, but I really improved my php skills by learning Drupal, mostly because it got tons of snippet and how to spread over the internet.

www.codeacademy.com is a great website too. It teaches you the coding and shows you the result in the same window.

I'll prefer the articles if it comes in the form of e-book and if it has a snap shoot of background image.

Please what is the difference between WAMP, XAMPP and HTML editor like notepad.
Because i used notepad to learn HTML/CSS. so will learning PHP require XAMPP Or WAMP?

That's why code academy is so good. It starts off at the very basics

"Type your name followed by X command" kind of thing. It's incredibly simple to start with

Sorry, I hadn't seen that post. I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that question. Perhaps a Google search could help

XAMPP and WAMP are local installs of Apache server that you use on your computer to work on/test your PHP driven site (like Wordpress). If you don't have a web space to practice on which has PHP installed you would need XAMPP or WAMP to practice offline on your computer. Disable Windows IIS server on your machine if it is running. The IIS server and Apache server will fight over who gets to be the local web server.

Notepad is a plain text editor available with Windows. Notepad++ is also a plain text editor but a bit fancier.

I currently have both installed and maybe it is partly because we are old friends but I tend to prefer XAMP. It is slightly easier to start and stop if choose not to run as a service.

The major advantage of notepad++, notpad2 or editors is line numbers, syntax and brace highlighting. Make those inevitable typos just a bit easier to find. Also they don't add .txt to every darn thing you save.

I use Uniform Server for web development and testing my own code. It is light. Php.net is the best place to start learning PHP coding.

Truth be told: Neither really helps a lot. Javascript does since it's also a programming language.
