Why not exhibit some output onto the screen? It is in truth much easier to achieve with PHP. All you have to do is use PHP language construct called echo and we are done. Here’s how..
Open a blank new file in your editor or notepad and write the below talk about lines in the file. Then save the file with a .php extension. If you are using notepad as editor then be careful about the file extension. In Windows OS the file extensions are often hidden, so you must ensure that file saved has a .php extension.
If that is the exact output on your browser, then it is a success!!! We are on a good start. If you did not see this output, then perhaps PHP was not installed or configured properly. Note that if the PHP file is prompted to be downloaded in your browser, then PHP is not installed or configured properly as the file with .php extension is not being parsed. Please refer to your installation procedure.
XP or Extreme Programming is a software that includes the main aspects of software development such as specification, design, development and testing. It also addresses communication and planning as well as code management.
To put it straight, XP deals with the whole progress phase from the first stage through the testing, release and further development. This application is suited for projects that require speed or those which are bound to change during the duration of the project. With this, the client is benefited because he is likely to get more input. XP likewise promotes a dynamic association between everyone involved in the conceptualization of the whole process.
There are some website owners who wish to restrict the access of their webpage to certain individuals or groups. It is inconceivable since every website owner’s dream is for him or her to have more traffic. Perhaps because some spammers have infiltrated their website, or maybe they have personal reasons. Nevertheless, there is actually a way to restrict the access of a certain user/s to the website or a certain page in a website. Captcha is being used by most webmasters in preventing spammers to send and send information in their website, however, here is the trick to totally ban them from entering your site. The key? IP addresses. Yes, this number sequence means a lot. You can find the coding here for your reference.

A website is one of the most important mediums to publicly help a company introduce a service or product. However, there are social networking sites that seem to also be a competitive marketing tool or strategy for business owners. From Facebook, Instagram to Twitter, news feeds are there to aggressively flaunt its feature on what it can really do. These social networking sites are powerful because they can instantly share and influence the people. However, a website is still a website. It is somewhat the core of your online presence. The best way to have a powerful marketing strategy online is by having both these platforms. Do not just have them separately but combine them every time. For example, place all your social networking links to your website and place a website link to your social networking site. Try having both of these helpful marketing tools and you will get great results in no time.
PHP or hypertext processor is a script language used to design web development. Generally, PHP is identified to be a programming language and is learnt widely by programming enthusiasts. There are two ways to get a job after mastering PHP. It is either getting hired by a large company or work as a freelancer. Getting a desk job offers rewarding compensation. However, it also demands tiring and complex obligations and learning other programming languages. Nevertheless, a chance of getting a highly paid salary is fixed. The second option for PHP programmers is to work as a freelancer. The demand for work is not as high and complex compared to those that work in big companies. It can also help them connect with other freelancers in the network that can offer help when needed. However, monthly income is not guaranteed compared to an office job as freelance workloads come in contractual basis.
Well, at present, it’s a yes and a no. There are two paths you can elect to take: the freelancer path, or the employed-by-a-big-company path. Let’s look at both.
As a more conventional approach, knowing PHP makes you employable by big Fortune 500 companies. While the pay can indeed be good, there may be more demanded of you. Aside from the conventions and obligations that come with a desk job, you may also need to learn other programming languages.
As a freelancer, however, the workload may not be as heavy. Be aware, though, that the pay may not be very big, and most jobs will be contractual. It will be a big help to keep in touch with a network of freelancers to help you out and that you can help them in return.
Are you an incorrigible, incurable, hopeless case of a multi-tasker? I know I am. Multitaskers seem to want to get everything done all at the same time, and thus subject themselves – and their computer, smart phone, a combination of both, or even double of any, as in the picture – to dozens of opened web pages, a long tray of pinned web pages, and so. Much. Stress. You might be multitasking too much if you end up forgetting just why you kept certain web pages open or pinned, your computer develops this habit of hanging too frequently lately, or even your CPU start getting hot enough to fry an egg. (Although really, we don’t suggest you even try proving the last option. Seriously.)
Now, if you’re working on a network and unleashing your propensity to multitask on a network computer, you may notice that this one can specially withstand the stress you put it through. You can thank the combined effort of PHP and FastCGI for that. It keeps your server from crashing when you have lots of web pages up.
PHP at heart is a great language used to make high speed and massive number-crunching a cinch. This is how cashier machines rack up values for your groceries, and how your school administration computer system quickly racks up students’ scores and averages for the year. Sometimes, this is also how some sports writers make predictions on which athlete or team will come out on top by feeding the players’ stats into the system. This is also how your accountants sometimes get the lowdown on your taxes for the year. On a larger scale, this is also how some apps allow you to blog, upload and more.
Basic math operations like adding subtracting, multiplying and dividing just need a few lines of code to get computations running. All you need do is assign numerical values to the variables in the text string, and off you go! It can also get the average of a set of numbers, and make geometric computations.
In the last post, we talked about how PHP-powered WordPress is becoming the go-to brand for serious bloggers everywhere. Today’ we’ll focus on how PHP is also helpful blogging via a smartphone.
Let’s say you want to update your blog, but don’t exactly have access to a working computer right now. Your PC might be busted, or a family member may have borrowed your laptop, or whatever. The good thing in all this is you have your smartphone with you, and it has all the pictures you wanted to upload in the first place. Brilliant! You start logging onto your blogging platform of choice, and get cracking on that post.
Your blogging app is powered by PHP, too. This special programming language makes programs more lightweight, taking up less memory space in your phone compared with other programs created with a different language. It also lets the programmer pack more things into the app, such as smileys, effects, and more to give you a much more enjoyable blogging experience.
