    ok,
    i was just offered hosting for $15 a year!! The problem is that i have been scripting in ASP for about a year now and thats what i use to create my sites. The host that offered to me doesnt support asp but
    DOES support php.
    I have done some short tutorials on php but not done any real research into it as of yet. Can someone please tell em where the best place is to learn about php.. php.net is where i have been this morning but is there any other good places??
    Anything else i should know about php?

    thanks

    First, no good hosting is that cheap. I very strongly recommend that you use a different host.

    I've heard of ASP 2 PHP and I seriously doubt it will do a good job, mainly given the complexity of ASP over PHP. Even if it works, it will likely run very slowly because it probably would not sufficiently optimize the code.

    PHP.net has the best and most complete documentation of the language.

    It shouldn't be too hard for you to pick up if you already know a language.... most of the concepts are the same.

    thanks..
    i have been doing some reading and have found it to be quite easy so far.
    Its pretty much the same as asp except with deifferent syntax.

    I will check out amazon for some books.

    exactly !!

    and if you know JavaScript well, the syntax should be a breeze to pick up !

    I just picked up a book at Borders. Maybe this will be helpful; maybe not.

    The name of the book is "PHP and MySQL Web Development". This book walks through the creation of an ecommerce site - going into detail of the core useful functions along the way (871 pages including the glossary).

    I've just finished the multidemensional arrays section. Pretty cool. I guess this sets PHP and Perl apart from other coding languages. They do NOT go into the use of every function. They review the most useful in their opinion and point you to php.net documentation for the rest.

    The book does not assume much prior knowledge with other scripting languages, but as you have started with ASP already, it should be a sinch.

    I haven't dealt with any of the code samples from the CDROM yet.

    It's written by Luke Welling and Laura Thomson (Second Edition) and published by Developer's Library http://www.developers-library.com.

    I was surprised when i did some reading about php if statements, they are exactly the same as javascript if statements!!
    I think i should have learnt php a long time ago. lol.

    Actually, it's Sam's Publishing not Developer's Library - my apologies.
