    From the book Build Your Own Database Driven Web Site Using PHP & MySQL. That book was when I switched from Perl to PHP for websites.

    Since this type of questions are frequently asked,
    I would like to request to Sitepoint for making an sticky thread for such newbie PHP Lovers.
    Isn't that a good idea?

    Firstly, read some articles about PHP itself. Then think of a simple task (like random number generator script, etc.) and start coding. Needless to say, you will need to ask for help on forums, read user guides and documentation, etc. And it's the good thing because the only way to learn PHP is do something.
