    You can start by reading some books (plenty ebooks too are available), google for tutorials and refer to the PHP manual (best resource).

    It is not posssible to learn PHP quickly , it needs good attention of a learner.
    Anyway you can join classes of PHP from an expert in your area, which i think better.
    If you want online learning then w3schools is best.
    Best of luck!

    I think practice is the best teacher. Put yourself targets, for example create a login/register form, find example code, try to change it. Then next target, etc.

    I would get some PHP code and try editing it and seeing what you can do. It will help you learn good practices (from seeing what other people have done) and actually coding is the only way to actually learn a language

    Learn PHP quick? If you're a programmer, open the manual and start programming. PHP syntax is pretty simple.

    If you're not a programmer, you have 2 choices:

    1) Learn PHP using PHP tutorials. You won't have any idea about how to write code to accomplish anything, but you'll think you know all you need. Books like "Learn PHP in 21 Days" will teach you everything you don't want to learn, quickly.

    2) Learn programming. In about 6 months of serious study, you'll be a beginner. Then you'll be able to open the PHP manual and you'll be able to write PHP code to do what you want - as long as what you want is pretty simple.

    How long does it take to be a good PHP programmer? I've been doing it about 10 years, and I still learn new techniques all the time. I've been programming for almost 40 years, and I still learn new things all the time. No one ever learns all there is to know about programming. If you're not planning on learning new things all the time, programming isn't for you. (And web development is just a form of computer programming.)

    I was able to write efficient PHP day 1. In fact, I only needed a reference and the PHP.net web site as a guide. I have a back ground in Perl and Java.

    I was able to write my first complete program two weeks after I finished my PHP book. Not the most complicated thing, but it inserted customer info into a database, sent out confirmation emails to multiple recipients and generated reports. It's all about how badly you want to learn PHP.

    Any book like "Learn PHP in 2 weeks" + manual + a lot of practice. PHP syntax is pretty simple, but make sure your code is readable for other :)

    Write a lot of comments in your code when you start, too. It helps you out more than anything else.
