    Find a site you wanted to have one of its kind and start cloning.

    I learned PHP by examples. If you find it useful and method suits you, find a site with step-by-step tutorials. Something like jobeet from Symfony.

    http://www.w3schools.com/
    i learned there
    pretty good tutorials, easy to understand but the real thing comes when you try to code your own web site
    i prefer Google a lot :D

    ok i am quite new to this so when you say cloning what exactly do you mean?

    its like you go and search for the BEST website out there
    then you start making its CLONE or copying the thing as it is
    this way you get off the HARD designing PART (that most of the web programmers lack :D )
    and get in directly to the coding

    but dont't cheat (like using chrome developer tools :D )
    just try to make everything b yourself from the CSS style to Jscript
    and when you find places to insert php use php

    this way you'll learn the progamming part easy and later you can make your own design

    I would say cheat as much as you can but that will only help in html and not in PHP and so copy html and work on PHP.

    You can start cloning Go4Expert.com as well if you wish to.
