"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

For PHP/Apache, the best sites I have ever found for usage are the documentations sites.

For mod_rewrite: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_rewrite.html

For PHP: http://us2.php.net/manual-lookup.php


They are very very indepth. If you then want to hone in on a specific functionality, you can google around for tutorials on that one item.

Just what I do to find the best information.
