today is very important day for me because finally decided to start exploring PHP. semester is over and i am here at university till early august and i am taking just one cource, i think this one month is perfect time to start with PHP which i was planning to do for a long time
i just got from library my "PHP and MySQL Web Development" book of around 800 pages by Laura Thomson and right now i am sitting in fron of my pc asking your for some advice.
i have a book and have a computer and have some brain but these are not enough for learning how to code, i need compilor/s, some forums where i can ask my stupid questions database,server etc for practising and experimenting if i want to learn it very good.
can you guys please tell me
1-what is best comiler(saying compiler i mean the program where you write code, for example DW8 is best for css, for me) for PHP(free is preferred)
2-which forums do you advice me to visit for my questions
3-what do i need to install to successfully practise php
well, i think thats all for now. hope to hear from you guys
