What is PHP Development?
There are three main areas where PHP Development are used.
- Server-Side Scripting
This is the traditional and most important target area for PHP. To do this work, you need three things. The CGI or server module PHP parser, a web server and a web browser. You have a connected PHP installation to run the web server. You can use a web browser to access the PHP program output by viewing the PHP page via the server. These can all run on your home computer if you only experiment with PHP programming.
2. Command Lines Scripting
You can run a PHP script without a browser or server. You only need to use the PHP parser this way. This type of use is ideal for scripts running cron (on * nix or Linux) or Task Scheduler (on Window) on a regular basis. These scripts can also be used for simple tasks in word processing.
