To build a web page with PHP

PHP stands for- Hypertext Preprocessor. It is one of the most popular scripting language today. It was originally designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages. Learning this language will give the user experience like exploring a new horizon. PHP is available as a processor for most modern web servers and as standalone interpreter on most operating systems. But the question is- is it possible for anyone to learn the language? That depends upon the passion you have got into you. For passionate web developers coding is always like poetry. If you are interested to build your carrier as web developer, then give the PHP a try.

First, you must be familiar with HTML. Rules of using tags in PHP is very much similar with HTML. PHP like HTML, has particularly formatted text that has special meaning. If you have a html file, you can convert it into a PHP document just by changing the extension. By giving the page the .php extension, you are telling the server that this page has PHP code in it and the server should then pass this page to the PHP interpreter to process it. With the page extension switched to ‘.php’, upload it to your server and then surf over to your page to see it in action. Remember, that the PHP code in your page can only work if it running from a server/computer that has the PHP interpreter installed – you cannot view the page by simple loading it your browser like you would a normal HTML page.
