I wanna start PHP and I found this book (http://www.amazon.com/o/ASIN/0672317842/ref=cm_custrec_gl_rec/002-1831821-4404838) book and i think it looks pretty cool. Is there a better one I should get or is this one the best?

Probably, if you want a book, and if you dont want to pay money (like me :)), then go to http://www.ascenvia.net and click on "tutorial engine" ; they have tutorials there.

Being the good C++ programmer that you are, PHP should be a cinch for you. :D

Let me know how goes the learning when you do start :)

I also want to learn PHP, especially since I have a holyday...
Thanks for the link civix, there are many tutorials there...

I'd prefer a book becuase you can read it anywhere and you can always use it as a reference. So, anybody got any advice on a PHP book? And thanks for that cool link, civix.

I've heard that book is pretty good. You might also want to checkout www.devshed.com and it's PHP tutorials and forums.

I would buy the book and see on the net for some interesting tutorials or open source projects.

Yeah, Php is very cool

I'm glad, that I can code good php stuff.

E.g.: My last project with PHP was a virtual platform, like Ebay for students.

The best resource for php is www.php.net and there are a lot of manuals and project information

The books, which were published by SAMS are often very good!!!

ok, decided to get this book (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1565926102//104-3268608-9598367?v=glance&s=books) mainly becuase it is about PHP4 and it is an O'Reilly book. Now I just need to scab the money from my parents...
