So, I want to try and learn PHP. This is one of the few forums I hardly ever post in, and I want that to change. Plus, I would like to add some PHP functionality to my website.
First things first, though. What's the best way to learn? I would prefer not to have to spend any money, as I'm a tight git , so an online resource would be great.
I wouldn't mind a little enlightening, though. How is PHP integrated into webpages? How exactly do things work? Do you place the PHP inside the webpage, or does the HTML code trigger a separate file? Please help me on my conquest to learn PHP (and hence rule the world ).

I learnt this from a book called 'Zero Knowledge Password'.

Get a great book (or internet resource) and start reading. While you're reading you shall think about the things you learn, and if you once think, "Hey! Why's that?", then go back in the book, and see if the question has already been answered previously.
What's the best way to learn?
Also, you will have to make some examples, and actually use what you have learned, in order to successfully continuing without forgetting what you previously read.
First of all, you'll need a server. This server will listen for incoming connections (also called clients) Every time a client is connecting, it will be serviced by the server, which is done in various ways. If the client is calling a PHP-file, the server will take the PHP-file and pass it to a PHP-interpreter. The PHP-interpreter will interpret the sourcecode, and return the generated HTML. The HTML will then be given by the server to the client, and the client will be able to read the document.

@ Martin_kp: you don't need Firefox for that. IE will do. And this thread is not in the tutorials section, but in the forum section, so it's going to be some sort of question or other.

However, I can't continue because no-one has replied to my question about the table cells. Could you help? I'm setting a table cell to "50px", using an external CSS style. In Firefox it's fine, but in IE it doesn't adjust the size.
Anyway, I'm a tad hampered, 'cause 1&1 don't supply any MySQL databases... sob sob...
