The first place to start is the PHP manual. Definitely read the first 5
chapters all the way through.

Here are a couple more sites that I have used extensively in the past.

Remember, there are a lot of articles and code that were written for PHP4
that will look and act different for PHP5. Also running v.4 on a v.5 server
could open you up to security vulnerabilities. Make sure you concentrate on
recognizing the differences.
