PHP What is it?





710ths
Hi, Can anyone tell me what PHP is?
As a novice to web programming I have only a good but basic knowledge of HTML and understand a bit of Java and the uses of Perl. Does anyone have a link to some good site that will enable me to learn more of PHP?

What I really want to do is capture names and email address coming in from my website into MySQL and autorespond back. Would PHP be the right way to go.

Any help would be great.

PHP is a programming language which is a recursive acronym for PHP Hypertext preprocessor. You can use it to create dynamic webpages, to interact with a databases, and for many many other purposes... A good free book available for PHP is "Practical PHP Programming". You can read it from http://www.hudzilla.org/phpbook/

PHP is the language that powers the web today. It powers apps such as PHPBB running the frihost forums. If you want a web language that will interface with Databases, there is nothing better.
Its just suited for the job you described.

all of you give him so general answers. What you need is that your site have that function you just said, autoresponding and stuff like that you can do them with asp, coldfusion, or anything like it, those work like this:

You have some program in the web, you have the code made with php for example, and you have what the user sees in his computer. The page you wrote in php is somehow readed by the webserver(probably apache), this webserver traduce the page and create the webpage everyone see on their computer. You should try search how to create pages with php as a start, then try some function to prove if it works, and later when you understand the whole process you try to find that instruction you need, how to use it on your code and stuff... to do that you use all that tutorials, always is better start from scratch.
