What Do I Need?
In general, to work with PHP, you need:
- A web server: PHP is a server-side scripting language, which means that it runs on a web server rather than in a user’s web browser. You’ll need a web server, such as Apache or Nginx, to run your PHP scripts.
- PHP interpreter: PHP scripts need to be interpreted by a PHP interpreter in order to be executed. You can download and install the PHP interpreter on your web server.
- Code editor: You’ll need a text editor or an integrated development environment (IDE) to write and edit your PHP code. There are many free and paid options available, such as Visual Studio Code, Sublime Text, and PHPStorm.
- Understanding of PHP syntax: To write PHP code, you’ll need to learn the syntax and structure of the language. You can find many online tutorials and resources to help you get started.
These are some of the basic things you’ll need to work with PHP, but the specific requirements may vary depending on your project needs and goals.
