github logo ・1 min read

PHP is a serverside scripting language, it is a very powerful language for making dynamic and interactive web pages. Php is free, robust and easy to learn for a beginner and it is supported most of the web servers. it is an efficient alternative to competitors like Microsoft's ASP.net and others.
To get started with PHP, it is expected you understand how the web works and the way the web page is structured and designed ( knowledge of Html & CSS). then to start using PHP, you can either find a web host on the web with PHP and MySQL support and start coding online or you can install a web server locally on your pc and then install PHP and MySQL on it. the later is easier to set-up as the whole package is bundled as Wamp for windows OS or Xamp which is available on all Operating system (cross-platform)
