would this be a good way to start web hacking?

So I'd say simple project that involves it all. Start a PHP project, with javascript on the frontend. That communicates with a database through SQL and php. So maybe like a simple guestbook/messageboard?

Edit:

Go to wargames sections for a lot of exercises to do: https://greysec.net/forumdisplay.php?fid=15

Would it be ideal to learn from code academy or sololearn then or does the course I picked work just fine?

Also, MuddyBucket said that if I wanted to be a hacker I should spend several months on web development first.

Why do I get conflicted answers on this? The people at my school say what you say but the people on Reddit agree with MuddyBucket.

Do both answers work?
