You may also find our email@example.com mailing list valuable for
discussing PHP. http://trilug.org/mailman/listinfo/dev is the sign-up
page for that.

Oof. No offense, but the 'canes are going to send some Canadians home
in cheap pine boxes shortly. ;-)

There is tons of great doc out there, and often the answer to a "silly"
question will be to point you to the right doc. Even us old timers have
a hard time finding the right piece of doc sometimes. If you've read
the right doc and still can't figure it out, I think you'll find this
group is very helpful in figuring things out.
How long have you been using Linux now? And PHP?
