try even reading a little bit. Larry Ullman has a good beginnign book for both PHP and Mysql.

"PHP and MySQL for dynamic Web Pages."

It assumes you know html but that you've nevver programmed in your life. So its a really good teachign manual.


Good suggestions. Now for another.

If you can't learn programming from a book. Most colleges offer courses for the web that will teach some if not all of the following to a basic degree.

PHP, html, xhtml, dhtml, JS, Perl, MySQL, oracle, ASP, .Net

i found (how to do every thing.....) is very usfull thaks for this book also i have download the manual as you said ... iam trying to write my first program with php


I learnt php/mysql from the book "How to do everything with php & mysql" by Vikram Vaswami. On amazon its like $30. Would recommend. Good for beginners as it covers php, mysql and apache individually then you look at some projects combining them. Only basic HTML knowlege is required.
