Default What Is PHP And How Do You Link/use It In Web Development?

What exactly can you use PHP for? What i understand is that you can read and write information on a database. Is it like javascript and css where you link your PHP file with a source code in your html page?

PHP is a server-side language. This means that it is executed on the server.

If you want to find out more a good place to start is W3 Schools

PHP is an HTML embedded programming language used to create dynamic web pages. The goal is to allow Web developers to write dynamically generated pages quickly.

PHP is really easy to learn, and it provides a lot of functionality to build a website that is dynamic. Additionally by using "includes" it can make your site easier to manage.

If you want to learn PHP, see this post for tutorials and resources

Feel free to ask us any coding questions along the way if you need help.

PHP is a freely used alternative for competitors like Microsoft ASP.

It's really not that hard to get used to just as long as you know how to apply logic formulation. If you want to learn, try websites like;
