It depends what you need to do.
PHP does have a really extensive online manual, though.
Ruby is a nice fully object-oriented language. Although I didn't learn that way, I do suspect that someone who learns a properly object oriented language first may naturally develop better habits.
Do you know HTML or XML? They're markup languages, rather than programming languages but you would do well to be familiar with them before you start programming, especially if you want to look at web programming.
The best thing to do is decide what you want to program, then look up what the most suitable languages are for your objective. Then look up which of those seem to be well covered online... free documentation, dedicated online forums, perhaps plenty of available text books.
If you know a programmer whom you can ask for help, perhaps study a language that they are familiar with.
