    I also started learning PHP from few days! I experienced W3CSchools is great source of learning basics but i prefer you to learn basic C languages that helps you to establish some programming concepts then PHP learning becomes easy

    php is not enough to start work and earn money, you should learn how to develop plugins for Open sourc board, that's really profit thing.

    I think C++ is more difficult then PHP to learn. Why do you prefer to learn it first?

    PHP is the programming concept for developing websites ,, for learning php you should have clear programming concepts first , then you can start programming in PHP , there is many books are available for basic knowledge of programming.

    when you've learned the basics of php, begin to learn on an MVC environment, such as cakephp

    I think if there's one thing to keep in mind when you're learning a programming language for the first time is that you need to get an idea of the structure of the thing, and how it works. A PHP file can be executed and then return HTML dynamically, and follows a certain structure. Learn the fundamentals, and try not to get caught up too much in the specifics of what individual functions do. I think you'll find that once you've learned one programming language you'll realise this and learning new languages becomes more natural :).
