Where to learn php

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So I have always wanted to become a programmer, and am finally taking my first steps towards it. After talking to a friend who is a programmer, he recommended starting with php, and I am a complete beginner when it comes to programming, outside of basic html. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good place online to learn php? Thanks a lot for any help, I really appreciate it.

Ok, I feel really stupid for asking this, told you I am a complete beginner. I know I write the script, then upload it to my webserver, but W3 doesn't say anything about what to use to write the script, am I just writing it in a text editor like Word and saving it as a .php or is there a specific program I need to use? Sorry, I really do feel stupid asking this, lol.

I use notepad++ with Filezilla for file transfers. Both free, both amazing.

Yeah, I just got Notepad++ and love it so far, and already had filezilla. I'm only doing

<?php
echo "Hello Wolrd!";
?>

but it's still really exciting just getting started and making things work. I'm looking forward to learning! Thanks again for all the help everyone.
