I took a job as a programmer analyst with a small city right after I graduated college a couple years ago. I have made various web apps like golf tee time tracking, purchase order requests, etc for the city. My boss only knows PHP and a bit of javascript and is all self taught and requires I use PHP to do things because then he can read the code and know whats going on in case he needs to backup support the things. He likes to just make everything from scratch. I do things his way 100% to accommodate. I only got basic PHP exposure in school, and am following his style for everything. Except I wrote a c++ program to write the base code of all new apps in his weird way so I don't have to type it up new every new project.

I want to know how to do it all properly so that I can start making apps in a way that will translate to other opportunities instead of this way that will get me nowhere outside of this job. If I can get going on this the right way I can slowly ease him into it so it will benefit my current job as well. Where do I even start?

Hi!

PHP is a good language to start a programming career as a web developer. Now if you want to learn a PHP then I suggest you to watch some good YouTube videos and most importantly daily practice it what you learn. Some other resources are already mentioned below.

1) https:// www.freecodecamp.org/
2) https:// nextideatech.com/
3) https:// www.w3schools.com/

Best of luck to you!

Only a word of warning, for the sake of it, it is difficult to guarantee academic right code. Always be pragmatic and clear first.
The theory of academic code is intended to simplify the holding of code and to clarify it in the right circumstances, but it is important to know where and when this design is actually guaranteed. For the sake of "correctness" it is very tempting to overcomplicate code, but this is a quick way to do the opposite of what is behind those values.
Patterns and concepts are tools and should be used properly and for the right job as all tools. This also means that they are not used.

It can be because it's pragmatic for the situation what the boss does. It may also be that he writes spaghetti code for procedural purposes without a careful design. Since I didn't see his code, I can't say. I would just like to take care of the over-design of code. It's a heck of a special kind.
