To begin working with PHP you must first have access to either of the following before PHP Installation:
- A web hosting account that supports the use of PHP web pages and grants you access to MySQL databases. If you do not have a host, but are interested in signing up for one, we recommend that you first read ourÂ Web Host Guideto educate yourself about web hosting and avoid getting ripped off.
- Have PHP and MySQL installed on your own computer. Read this lesson thorougly for more information on installing PHP.
Note : MySQL is not absolutely necessary to use PHP.
For those who are experienced enough to do this yourself, simply head over to PHP.net – DownloadsÂ and download the most recent version of PHP.
However, if you are like most of us, you will most likely want to follow a guide to installing PHP onto your computer. These guides are kindly provided by PHP.net based on the operating system that you are using.
WindowsÂ – Windows Installation Guide
MacÂ – Mac Installation Guide
LinuxÂ – Linux Installation Guide
This is all about PHP Installation.
