Get a cheap web host that supports php,
(1and1.com for example, but there are many others)
or install locally.
(using the XAMPP package)
Grab a book,
(http://www.amazon.com...­ a personal favorite, but amazon is full of them)
read a tutorial...
(http://us.php.net/tut...­ or a simple search google for "php tutorials")

Come back when you can <?php echo "hello world"; ?> or with questions.

I got started with a book called "php and mysql web development" (now in 4th ed.)


for editing I use the free crimson editor.

and I use abyss web server x1, also free for development. Be sure to read about how to configure php for it, should take just a few minutes.

...this will get you started
