Very nice website from Egaladeist but my personal favorite tutorial for PHP still remains being http://www.php.net/manual/en/ well actually now that I see it I'm not sure if it's a tutorial or a manual..but oh well, it's how I learned.

Step 1: Install MySQL, I would recomend using windows because its installers and configs are alot simpler than in linux
Step 2: Install PHP.
Step 3: Install Apache (Don't use IIS, its PHP support is subpar and its generaly unsecure and nasty. Plus it smells funny.)
Step 4: Follow PHP and Apache information on how to intergrate the two.
Step 4.2: Troll #php @ irc.freenode.org if you need help.
Generaly, looking up information on PHP is easy, just go to php.net/<your function here> and it will bring up the information you need, their search is a little poor but there are loads of example programs that are very useful.

You could install xampp (on Windows) or LAMPP on Linux, this installs Apache, PHP, Perl, mySQL, and some other goodies. You can get these at the ApacheFriends website. As for learning PHP and mySQL, they covered most of the good sites, however I would also suggest PHPFreaks.
Another thing I would recomend to help you learn PHP, would be to take apart other peoples code, to see what does what.
