In addition to Gash's last comment, If you want to use Linux, (Which you can dual boot with Win9X) then the following URL is a very easy step-by-step guide to getting up and running with PHP, MySQL, and Apache:

If you're just starting out with PHP have a look at http://www.wiktor.dk .
You can get 10MB free webspace with PHP!
Don't worry, although they are located in Denmark the language is English.

I use FutureQuest - www.futurequest.net , and I'm quite happy with them. That's where I learned PHP- nobody taught me, but the helpful forums there as well as several other PHP users helped me learn the language quickly.
All accounts have PHP, ePerl and quite a lot of other stuff- a real developers' paradise, IMHO. You don't get MySQL with the base accounts, but I would recommend learning basic PHP first before learning how to speak SQL
Check them out! I have been there a while and am really happy with their service. I am not affiliated with them in any other way than as a customer, just so you know
Making good ideas grow

Yet another virtual domain service is digitalspace.net. They offer PHP, custom and pre-installed CGI, MySQL, 25 megs, unlimited POP3, unlimited forwarders and auto-responders, and WWW web space manager, all for $2.00 a month. I use this service, and I've been very happy with it.

I think since Kevin only wants to learn PHP. my best advice is to get PHP 3, mySQL, and apache 1.3.9 and install them on ur local system. Then when u r pretty much at ease with them then u can go for hosting ur site. There r two sites which offer free PHP 3 and mySQL :

Can't say much about support since I haven't really needed any yet and I do know that the company is fairly new (which may explain the speed I am getting), but my sites load very fast and I have no complaints up to this point. I think their main site is visualpresence.net and I pay about $8.50 for each of my accounts there (I am a reseller though).
I agree though that you should just install locally and play around for a while since it's free. The number of PHP resource sites out there is growing quickly and there's enough now for anyone to learn on their own.

I have a few dedicated servers setup with a host, and we have PHP, MySQL and all the goodies. We allow 300 MB of storage and 2 gigs of transfer. We can give you additional transfer at low cost if necessary or customize a plan for you.
Depending on what you need, we can offer you hosting at $10 per month. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I we can start hosting for you!

I am currently with digitalspace.net but I am a bit fedup with them. Seems to me that MySQL or FTP goes down at least once a week and they take ages to fix it (I have had a SUPPORT REQUEST asking to bring it back up and have not got a response in over 2 days).
If they weren't so cheep (well actually, they just don't force you to take massive packages) then I would have dumped them ages ago.
Also www.virtual-cities.net/hosting.html are meant to be quite good, but I can't afford that much just for hosting.

If cost is REALLY an issue for you, I suggest you look into: http://www.sandwich.net/
I've got a number of my sites and a few of my clients' sites hosted with this guy. His charging is unique because he charges you for what you need/use.

I've found a good FREE PHP host: http://www.worldzone.net/
The only draw backs are:
+ The CGI directory is /cgi, instead of /cgi-bin
+ They put a banner at the bottom of you page.

Try BRInet at http://www.brinet.net/ - $5 for 30meg of space on either a full domain or a subdomain, your choice. They have PHP3.0.6 but they should be updating to PHP4 shortly after it is released. The use NT but they do have MySQL, but it means no Apache as they're strictly IIS.
April 4th, 2000, 02:15 PM
This Site support PHP version 3.
You have 20MB of free WEB space.
August 26th, 2000, 02:45 PM
There are a 2 free host I can suggest that offer php: http://www.jumpworld.net ->20MB http://www.3q.to ->5MB
They're both in english, offer ssi, full cgi-bin access, ftp access and a subdomain.
Jumpworld only puts banners on .html files, so you won't have any if you use only php or shtml.
