I would like to personally welcome you to the forum! phpFREAKS is a great place to look to learn PHP!

 

Here are some helpful links.

https://www.youtube.com/user/phpacademy

http://www.w3schools.com/php/

https://php.net/manual/en/index.php

 

 

Usually when you are learning php you are using mysql, here are some mysqli links:

http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_ref_mysqli.asp

http://php.net/manual/en/book.mysqli.php

 

 

 

Quick facts:

When dealing with sensitive information such as (passwords) hash it. http://php.net/manual/en/function.md5.php (dont use md5 professionally only use for practice there are better ways to hash)

Hashing and encryption are entirely different. Hashing is 1 way (never retrievable) and Encryption has a key to unlock the secret.

PHP is best with OOP(object orientated programming) style. http://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/object-oriented-php-for-beginners--net-12762

Don't include database information in your PHP files, write that data as an environment variable in .htaccess

 

 

 

:) hope that helped

Yeah i agree W3schools is only good for a reference of HTML or css.

w3schools is infamous for wrong information, bad practices and plain nonsense. In fact, there used to be an anti-w3schools site (aptly called W3Fools) which attempted to point out all their mistakes.

 

I'd like to believe that w3schools has improved over the years. But when I look at their HTML tutorials, the markup isn't even valid. And the JavaScript tutorials still contain nonsense like document.write() and promote spaghetti code.

 

I understand that w3schools is appealing for a beginner, because it looks fancy and has this nice “Try it yourself” feature. But if you're looking for reliable information from people who actually know what they're doing. w3schools is not the right source. Use the Mozilla Developer Network instead.

Welcome aboard Maria.

 

Browsing around here seeing others mistakes and then solutions will help a lot.

Occasionally some members are nice enough to write something out for you and help you along every issue.

 

Follow the great advice given here and will become easier.

Jacques1 thanks for advice, MDN looks pretty cool, but I don't know where to start from. I think I will use it as a handbook
