[Web4lib] Training Recommendations for PHP and MySQL

Although not a dual training resource for PHP & MySQL (at the same time) many people have found KillerPHP's videos to be quite helpful.

Personally I learned from reading a ton of books and actually doing, and am still learning (never to stop). After learning the basics, doing a Google search on similar solutions led me down a path of answers and enlightenment, and eventually to the land of PHP frameworks to do the same thing, only faster (but a framework still requires knowledge of the language).
I do like the Sitepoint and Head First books when just starting out on a topic if it means anything.

Would you let me know what your favorite training resources are for learning PHP and MySQL? I have checked the web4lib archives, but they seem to be full of posts relating to specific problems.

I've found a nice selection of books, but knowing sources of online training, tutorial videos, etc would be very helpful. If desired I can summarize for the list. Thanks, Daniel
