http://www.phpfreaks.com

This is a good place to start. It has taught me quite a bit.

www.phpbuilder.com is also pretty good.

I would also reccomend picking up a good book. That has helped me a ton :thumbsup:

Yea but www.phpfreaks.com has a nicer layout, and easier navigation. I always found phpbuilder to be too confusing and too crammed with ads and other useless crap.

And don't forget the php manual (http://www.php.net/manual/en/index.php), it is quite good.

I know, just giving him another link ;)

Here's a great book, I have it and I highly reccomend it.

create a new php page with only this code on it
<?php phpinfo() ?> and upload it.

Your register_globals might be turned off.
