PHP Tutorial
PHP is a powerful server-side scripting language for creating dynamic and
interactive websites.

PHP is the widely-used, free, and efficient alternative to competitors such
as Microsoft's ASP. PHP is perfectly suited for Web development and can be
embedded directly into the HTML code.

The PHP syntax is very similar to Perl and C. PHP is often used together
with Apache (web server) on various operating systems. It also supports
ISAPI and can be used with Microsoft's IIS on Windows.

Introduction to PHP
A PHP file may contain text, HTML tags and scripts. Scripts in a PHP file are executed on
the server.

PHP Installation
What do You Need?
This tutorial will not explain how to install PHP, MySQL, or Apache Server.

If your server supports PHP - you don't need to do anything! You do not need to compile anything or install any extra tools - just create some .php files in your web directory - and the server will parse them for you. Most web hosts offer PHP support.

However, if your server does not support PHP, you must install PHP. Below is a link to a good tutorial
from PHP.net on how to install PHP5:

Download Apache Server

PHP Syntax

You cannot view the PHP source code by selecting "View source" in the browser - you will only see the output from the PHP file, which is plain HTML. This is because the scripts are executed on the server before the result is sent back to the browser.
