What is the best way of learning php usiing wamp server?
I Have just started learning php using wamp?

I would suggest first reading the beginner’s tutorial on php.net to get a basic understanding of what php is and how it operates, and the basic syntax. After that it’s just a case of using it to try different projects and expand your knowledge by using it.

Googling for tutorials on specific subjects if you get stuck always helps, and Sitepoint also sells some books on the subject.

Thank u so much my dear friends

In my opinion forget the other features of PHP; you just think about PHP as a string generator. Try echo command to generate your HTML page, and then add few conditional statements (if, switch, etc.).
Do not forget to download help file from php.net.

If you’re a visual learner, the Diving Into PHP screencasts are great.

Hello all, I want to share a new site for PHP beginners. It is providing free php tutorials, php scripts, php articles and many more! See my profile.

Now it is possible to take the tutorial so simply and to study php , and once we learnt some long years it at university… :nono:

Tutorials have always been an option. (In fact, I started off with one 9 years ago.)

The only problem with a tutorial (versus a book or a class) is that it won’t strive to be a complete introduction to the subject, nor will it mention the things it is not covering. A tutorial might not mention much of security, for example (something that is especially vital). If you are new to web programming or programming, then reading a book is a much better idea.

There are some online books for PHP though. http://www.tuxradar.com/practicalphp is one, but I have not read it, and I’ve known about it for a few years, so I don’t know how up-to-date it is. Some tutorials are also borderline-books at brief.

I agree with sk89q. If you’re new to programming, absolutely get a book. Get one that is targeted at someone new to programing.

I learned via tutorials and google. It worked, but looking back, I really could have progressed way faster. A good beginners book will teach you things in a strategic order, introducing new things only after you’ve been given a proper foundation to learn it. Learning on my own, I spent enormous amounts of time being simply lost.
