|You have heard about dynamic webpages and you are ready to try some on your own website. But how do you do this? There are several programming languages (or web scripting languages) that you can use to write your dynamic webpages and PHP is one of the best. It is very flexible and very easy to learn. This is why it has become one of the most popular programming languages for the web. So what will you need to start programming with PHP?|
First, you will need the same tools that you use to write your regular/static html webpages.
The easy way if to use a program such as Sokkit. This little shareware program was a blessing for me when I found it. It will install a small PC sized Apache web server and the PHP language interpreter on your computer with a self-installing wizard. It also comes with optional MySQL software. (For WindowsR NT, 2000, and XP)
That's all, after you install these programs on your computer you are ready to write you first PHP program.
