PHP For Web Programming
Today, PHP is used by more than 33% of all Internet web sites world wide. It is a robust yet easy to use programming language for students to learn not only web programming, but also OOP (Object Oriented Programming) and other high-level concepts.
In an era of shrinking budgets, PHP has another great attribute. It’s free to download and use!
PHP can be installed and run on pretty much any Windows desktop computer and comes pre-installed on many versions of Linux. An expensive copy of Windows Server is not required.
K12IRC.org runs on PHP. It’s part of our LAMP server environment (Linux, Apache web server, MariaDB data base, and PHP). WAMP is the Windows version.
PHP originally started out as PHP/FI, “Personal Home Page / Forms Interpreter”, back in 1995.
Editing PHP files can be done with any text editing program, like Windows' built in NotePad editor or one of a number of free, open-source options. Our webmaster uses Sublime Text, a sophisticated text editor with capabilities like editing very large files, displaying syntax errors in real time, and search whole projects quickly.
