The dummies books are quite good.

 

You can also test your PHP on your own machine if you download XAMMP. It will also run from a USB thumb drive.

 

ok so i will need to go and get the php & mysql for dummies and now when i do the coding do i need a special program to do the doe in or can i use 1 notepad or 2 frontpage? and that prog u suggested what is that? cause i know my hosting has php as well so i could test it as well by uploading it to my cpanle right?

There's about a bazillion tutorials on the 'net on PHP. But I really like to have a book to reference when it comes down to learning something. A little while back I picked up PHP in Easy Steps and loved it. An excellent beginner PHP and MySQL book. Its a couple years old now but the info is still current however some of the mysql stuff has been replaced with advance commands.

You are reinventing the wheel. There are member scripts out there. There are CMS packages that do it natively.

 

Storing credit card or paypal information unless it's secure is dangerous.

explain meaning cms scripts what u mean , im new at this and have been doing alot of reading on php and so forth, amember pro is a html/php mysql database form that is installed and when someone joins the site to be a paid member they have to fill it in and when its submitted the form directs them to paypal unless the site owner reconfigs the coding. see what im asking, ive talk to alot of people they said i can do the same id just have to by the book and read up on it more.

There is nothing stopping you from doing your own. I was only trying to point out that you were going to be doing something that's already been done before.

 

You will have learn how to code in PHP and MySQL. I was trying to save you some time and headache.

 

I program for a living and I would use an already built script over creating my own to save time.
