PHP is an open-source, server-side scripting language used primarily for web development on Apache and the usual programming language in a LAMP environment. You can learn PHP programming with the content, tutorials and PHP help and tutorial examples from Dev Shed. The PHP language lets programmers create web pages with dynamic content that can interact with databases and provides an object-oriented structure via php5 for developers. This makes it very popular for developing any web based software applications. If you’re looking for PHP answers, look no further. You have it right here and in our PHP forums.
