Where do I start?!?!
I've been developing a website and I've started to realize that I'm going to have to host it on a server that allows PHP and other server side perks.
But I have no idea where to start with everything. I'd like to get a basic understanding of things before I dive in.
I plan on hosting it offline on my machine with Apache for now. Its setup so I can access it from my home ip. But where do I go from there?
Anyone have any decent server side tutorials? Something that will cover the basics of SQL and PHP and all the other perks of having a server?
It seems so hard to get my foot in the door on the topic because I don't know which to learn about first.
Any help or tutorials will be great. I just need someone to point me in the right direction to start off lol.
Thanks in advance.

Thank you kindly. I'll start reading through these.
Even their titles seem to make the task seem less daunting haha.
