    http://hudzilla.org/phpwiki/index.php?title=Main_Page is a good starting point, as well as the Sams Teach Yourself series (for php atleast)

    W3Schools is a great starting point for web dev.

    Also, the PHP ultimate resource (PHP.net) is a great resources as well.

    www.sitepoint.com
    www.phpfreaks.com
    www.php.net

    But if you can afford it, I strongly recommend Safari Library:
    http://safari.oreilly.com
    Great source not only for PHP/MySQL, but for all web and non-web software development.

    O'Reilly has a number of great free tutorials and articles as well.

    If you're interested in some dead tree help, check out Beginning PHP & MySQL:

    http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-PHP-...6489226&sr=8-2

    Jason Gilmore, the author, is as super smart guy: he was an editor of 1.5 of my books, and is a very clear communicator. (FWIW, he's also writing Ruby code; like me, he also finds that writing Ruby code makes writing *about* PHP code much harder.)

    Take it easy,

    Heh.

    My original way of learning PHP was sitting down one weekend with a bunch of simple PHP and MySQL scripts and just hacking away at them. Reading through the code, understanding what it does. Removing variables. Adding variables. Copying sections of code to modify the existing code etc etc.

    After a few days of this, I had the basics. enuff so that I could start building my own CMS.

    Although, now that they have so many tutorials, I guess that helps a little more
