    Hey... Hi everybody!
    I am new here, and also new to build websites.
    But I have this program PHP Myadmin, and I dont know how to use it.
    I have php samples too.

    May any one can give me any way how to build websites with this php myadmin?

    I like PHP, and I would love to be useful at my country, as many others!

    Thanks!

    Phpmyadmin is more for database's (MySQL). If your web host does not have it already installed you can download it for free and install it in to a folder by uploading the files to your account directory.

    If it's already installed, then you will need to configure a databse name, then add a table(s). There will be a wizard for that to do.

    So in order to design a website, I have to learn the scripts codes?
    just for example I wanna design a forum, I have to build it using codes, not any program that can help me design easily in PHP?

    there are PHP IDE's that will make coding by hand easier: zend studio and eclipse are a few. there are also premade scripts and website applications that are available to you, for example: if you want a forum, check out phpBB or vBulletin, they are out of the box solutions for getting a forum up and running without needing to know any PHP code. but, if you insist on coding everything yourself, you're gonna have to dive into some actual code sooner or later, i'd recommend using an IDE such as the ones i mentioned earlier, it'll make your life a lot easier.

    Well, PHPBB and VBulletin are good forums written in PHP, which you can download. VBulletin is better but costs - PHPBB is free but isn't as good.

    When it comes down to developing a web application, you should be able to write it all yourself. In fact, all aspects of the web it's better to write yourself. For example, HTML, CSS, JS, PHP - then desktop languages.

    In fact, I started out using Notepad for the above four languages, but then I moved to NotePad++ because it has syntax highlighting etc - really handy.

    But yeah, PHP is written - not manufactured.

    There are some open source packages for a quick website, such as Joomla - but alot of developers are against the usage of them because they make low grade sites.

    To put it in perspective, a PHP programmer carves an oak throne - an open source package is a plastic garden chair.

    May any one can give me any way how to build websites with this php myadmin?
    PHPMyAdmin stands for PHP MySQL Administrator. It's just a way to manage MySQL databases, and its written in PHP.

    Yep

    BTW I recommend you use WAMP rather than a manual install.

    Go to 'My Computer', click 'C:\', 'Wamp' then 'WWW'.

    Go to your brower (ie, ff, opera etc) and, in the url bar, type: http://localhost/

    That localhost is your server. Any file you go to on there is a parsed version of the file in c:\wamp\www\.

    E.g. go to http://localhost/index.php

    that's a parsed version of:
    c:\wamp\www\index.php

    Create a folder under c:\wamp\www, and start learning PHP

    Put your files in that new folder, then when you want to try them go to http://localhost/yourfolder/thefilename.php
