PHP installation

PHP installation:

You can start using PHP in the following ways.

 yes Find web hosts that support PHP and MySQL.
 yes Install PHP and MySQL by installing the webserver on your own PC.

Use a PHP supported web host.

If you already have PHP active on your server, you don't need to do anything else to set up PHP.

Just create some files with the .php extension and put them in your web directory and run them from the browser then the server will automatically parse them for you.

You don't have to bother compiling anything or installing extra tools.

Since PHP is free, most web hosts support PHP.

Set up PHP on your own PC

However, if your server does not support PHP, you need to do the following:

    yes Install the webserver
   yes Install PHP
   yes Install the database. E.g. MySQL

Our advice:

   yes WAMP - for Windows
  yes LAMP - for Linux
  yes MAMP - for Mac
  yes SAMP - For Solaris
  yes FAMP - For FreeBSD
