    Where is the best place I can get tutorials for these things?

    Tripod, or should I say lycos, have been upgrading their systems and are now offering PHP4 and mysql free for sites hosted with them, and since I don't know s**t about either of these things I'm looking for something a complete idiot would be able to understand [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Thank you [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Heres a couple of my bookmarks:
    http://www.php.net/ http://www.phpbuilder.com/ http://php.weblogs.com/adodb_manual

    It will take some reading but it's fairly simple.

    I tried PHP.net to learn PHP and was lost.

    I suggest you get PHP-Nuke or PHP builder installed on your site first. After you get it installed you will start to learn how to modify PHP for your needs. I learned HTML by using FirstPage 2000 to teach me HTML and I used PHP-Nuke to teach me PHP and MySql. If you need help PM me.

    php-nuke is great, but I don't know how it'd go for a learner.
    try searching for "php tutorials" & then then refer to php.net for reference material to back up the tutorials.

    I found the book 'Sams-Learn MySQL in 24 Hours' to be a great resource. It won't teach you everything, but it is a great beginner course on MySQL. I think they also have one for PHP, but not too sure on that one.

    Another thank you to everyone [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I'll be playing about with this for a while just to try and get some sense out of it before I do any major project.

    Now I know who to turn to if (when) I get into difficulties.

    Thanks again <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon14.gif>
