What is the fastest and best way to learn PHP and MySQL?? I'm ready to go with it. I'm not certain precisely when I will start a forum, but I've just decided that I definitely will.

I could only have a forum that is easy to use. (I just stopped a debate in a forum with a lot of knowledgeable people, only because using the software was like punishment -- but it was a favorite topic of mine). I consider this forum one of the best for ease of use -- which commends vbulletin (but who is the host? I heard not to use GoDaddy on forums). I remembered one forum from the past that was even better, and I just went back to see, and it is Simple Machines -- the posting was completely effortless. (BTW -- I've always found searches here easy, but the trick is knowing the search word).

If anyone has any suggestions on how to do a forum, I would appreciate hearing them. One thing I've noticed over the years is, that threads I debate in get high viewing volume fast, and I'm worried about rapid growth, but I'm only going to do a discussion forum, so maybe that won't be a problem -- but it could be, if there truly is a need for what I have in mind and my approach is unique.
