Hey Toqeer, are you looking for help with a specific CMS or framework, a general language guide, or something else? With a bit more info on your background/needs myself or other folks may be able to help guide you to a good resource.
Do you know what type of learning style you tend to prefer? (ie: following tutorials, full on books, just experimenting/doing?)

[practical book with code examples and guidelines] phpapprentice.com/ this looks great, from a quick check. It takes you through all the basics, and then from there you will be able to decide more specifically depending on what you want to build, going through tutorials for X or Y

phptherightway.com/pages/The-Basic... this site in general seems pretty good, so maybe it's a good reference/handbook to keep handy as well !

[video tutorial] In case you also like video laracasts.com/series/php-for-begin... this is video may be a helpful guideline to get started. It's a little old (2016) but a lot of the basics will still be useful.

Depending on what path you want to take next (CMSs, frameworks, integrations you may want) you will probably benefit from specialized courses and content, but learning the basics first is always a good thing !

Of course, the PHP manual is always a handy resource as well (php.net), as is dev.to .

Good luck !

When you feel ready to start with Laravel, this is the best online course, developed by Jeffrey Way, the creator of Laracasts itself:

laracasts.com/series/laravel-6-fro...

It's free, but the quality and usefulness are astounding.
