    Hello

    I'm putting together my church's website and the web host supports PHP (and
    Perl) as scripting languages on Solaris with Apache. So I will need to use
    PHP if I develop a web blog or something like that.

    I've studied both ColdFusion and "Classic ASP" (as well as Javascript) in my
    studies. My ASP teacher said ASP is very similar to PHP. Is there a good
    book on PHP I should look at? I've bookmarked [url]http://www.w3schools.com[/url]

    Also, will I need to load Linux on my PC before using PHP? I have a copy of
    RedHat 9. At present I have both Windows NT4 Server and Windows 98SE, on
    seperate hard drives.

    Thanks

    The best place to read about php for free is at [url]www.php.net[/url]
    If you prefer the good old fashioned paper equivalent, then I recommend PHP
    and MySQL web development

    I got "PHP Black Book" by Coriolis technology press and found it very good.

    And...

    He said whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? lol

    I know both and ASP is NOT very similar to PHP, as ASP's default
    language is VBScript and PHP's language has a similar syntax to that of
    C/C++ it's like saying Visual Basic is like C/C++ *Thud*

    Hello

    In web development , I've covered both ASP and ColdFusion (as well as
    JavaScript and html/xhtml) in my studies.

    I'd like to learn PHP at some stage. I've read that PHP on Linux is somehow
    better than PHP on Windows. Is this true? I've got both Windows NT4 Server
    and Windows 98SE and I recently picked up Fedora Core 1.

    Thanks
