Ok, i figured i'd try php, didnt seem hard and i figure i should learn it sooner or later. I come across a message board just for php and get to know a few ppl. I ask them what i need to learn php and they told me to download php so i did. I talk to sum dude on AIM from the php board and hes telling me how to install the stuff and what i need, lah lah. Then he tells me i must be running a webserver and all this other crap.... all i want to do is learn the language and get familiar with it... anyone have any suggestions?

They offer free hostin and PHP 4 access. :p You can purchase more space, but 20 mbs is good to learn with.

Actually they charge for hosting on that site. I used to have an account there. But they disabled it. Anyways, I would suggest what that guy told you about setting up your own server. It's easier than you think. And it would save you money unless you can find a site that offers PHP and free hosting. PLus you'll learn something out of it by setting it up yourself.

Yep actualy I can't seem to find a free PHP host anywhere. All the ones I have found that say FREE end up charging a fee of some sort. [Shit]

I figured it out. I set up a lil apache server.. was really easy but it isnt secure... just good enough to mess with the language, works for me. Im sure ill learn more about servers when needed, im on 56k now and connect at 24 so there is no point in hsting till i move.

Yea you will now want to install both PHP and MySQL.

I think you will find those two to be a fun and powerful combo.

On my site we are developing a search engine.

Scallion is very knowlegeable in both PHP and MySQL. Might wana look him up if you get in a pinch.
