Multiplayer Flash quiz

I need to make a multiplayer quiz game in flash. There should be 8 players at the same time, the game should start only when all the players are connected. When one player is answering the others wait.

Can it be done only with php, mysql and actionscript? If not, what do I need more? Do you know some tutorial?

It can be done with flash and a php backend. Ideally, the php should be written such that it runs as a server that flash connects to.

I don't know any tutorials for this kind of thing specifically but general tutorials for each language will help.

Are you referring to the socket programming?

Yes, you will require socket programming to make any kind of decent app.

Personally, I'd do the backend in Java but php can do it, with a bit of pursuasion.
