: thanks for any reply..
I started to learn PHP 2 months ago as a module for my HND course. I found the language fairly easy because I knew C/C++ and Java. The PHP syntax is similar to C. Also you should be familiar with HTML/XHTML as these tags are embeded within PHP code.
What you need?
An editor to write PHP code.
The PHP Engine to translate code to HTML/XHTML.
This engine will be on a Web Server that has PHP installed. You can get connected to a web hosting company that provides this support or install locally on your current system.
Get a good book on PHP.
I bought PHP and MySQL Web Development by Luke Welling and Laura Thompson. This is recognized as the best book on PHP. The PHP crash course in chapter 1 will get you up to speed quickly.
Hope this helps
