A VERY, VERY quick list of some resources that may help you out. There are many more.
Excellent starter's book by Kevin Yank is available here: http://www.sitepoint.com/article/228 When I first started, I used it and had stuff up and running in an hour. Also, look on Amazon for PHP and MySQL Development by Welling and Thompson; typically a staple among those new to PHP and MySQL. I own it and used it frequently when first starting out. Of course, there are excellent, free resources available at www.php.net and www.mysql.com that will give you all you need to know to do whatever you need with PHP and MySQL. I bought books to get me started, but now all I use are the PHP and MySQL user documentation as they are both excellent resources. Other helpful pieces of information are the Apache web site (popular, but not the only choice): http://www.apache.org/ And a GUI for managing a MySQL server: http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmyadmin/ All of this information and more is available if you search Google or if you search the archives at php.net. The best way to learn this stuff is to get the basics on your own then ask a question specific to a problem you might be experiencing. You'll get much better help that way.
