setup a local web server
code some php
Step 1: You Will Need
notepad++(optional,but makes coding allot easer)
a web hosting account here (only needed if you want to publish your php code or use more advanced stuff.)
Step 2: Xampp
(if you want me to post one in text just comment bellow)
Step 3: Echo and Print
lets start by saying something to do this we use echo.
ok here we go
echo "this is text";
so whats this mean? ill do a brack down
tells the computer to say something
tells the computer the string has started
tells the computer the string has ended.
Step 4: Variabels
there like cut and past but in php
so whats the point of that
say there was some song string that you used alot like
this is a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong string.
and you dont want to type that every time you want to say it then you would use a variabal. but how? with ease. here:
$long = "this is a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong string.";
you can also put strings together with a
$str1 = "this is my first string. this is my";
$str2 = "second string.";
echo " $str1.$str2";
put what if i want to say something with $ or "" in it?
use a \.
echo "Liam said \"the his name is Liam too \"
echo "we will have to charge him \$10";
Step 5: Php Can Do Math
just follow along!
say i wanted to add 5 and 5 together then i go
this will output
so now lets to some more advanced math
here is a key
add = +
take away = -
divide = /
multiply = *
