    That depends. I didn't and I won't use any of those distros, I have just downloaded latest Apache, mySQL and PHP, *carefully* read the readmes, installs etc., then included manuals and all was done in 2 hours or so...

    The problem is that most of us just skip the manuals and then they complain that all this is averbloated and way too complicated.

    So to sum that all, if you want to get your feets wet with PHP, there are 2 ways:

    1) Install the AMP platform from scratch (Apache + mySQL + PHP)
    2) Use a distro like phpdev or phpTriade (not free AFAIK)

    Then when you get this stuff up and running you can start working. The first thing to get is of course The PHP Manual (extended CHM edition) from php.net. Then, there are couple of books for beginners by Sams pubishing etc.. I never read such book, because PHP Manual is free and beats them all, but sometimes they are usefull.

    I'd suggest to learn it you go through w3's tutorial. ( http://www.w3schools.com/php/default.asp )

    Or you could search google.

    yeah I remember I looked into it previously but I was easily bored out of my mind, however I'm older now and have more of a desire to pick up new skills

    Maybe I'll start this weekend and I'll tell ya guys n gals how it goes.

    I think this site is pretty good, it's not the best, and I learn mySQL somewhere else, but it's pretty good. One problem it's on a site where you can also learn how to make a p0rn site.. but if you want that it's also good

    Installing Apache seperate then installing MySQL is old method now. First install WAMP (if you r on windows), its free. It will install everything by itself, server and mysql DB. Then try connection few DB forms etc. And then try uploading few images etc. I think you will get to know how simple PHP is.

    You can start your computer to learn PHP. You can use this code to develop your webpage. You can use Dreamweaver to customize your PHP code.
