[GUIDE]How to start a PHP website![TAGS,TIPS]


Recommended Posts

Hello guys. As my first tutorial i thought to share with you some of my php knowledges!

So here we go :).

basicly to create a PHP website we need a notepad , a notepad++ or a Dreamweaver (or any other programm you desire).

Just to know PHP well it's a language based on HTML and its tags. (mostly .. with some addons)

Some main reasons to start a PHP website are: It's protection, PHP websites can't have their source code viewed by the explorer or get riped (many times the Ripper** Programm is downloading the PHP files as HTML..). It's eassines.., easy to learn eassy to code.. like HTML.


Now to get started you need to open your editing programm.

Now for a basic knowledge PHP codes are usually placed in a

<?PHP  ?>

tag. Every word or code that gets typed in those tags  is considered as source code.

Now a basic code is this:

<?php $title = "Hello!"; ?>

Now if you type in a page.

<?php require 'configfile.php'; ?> <title><?php echo $title?></title>

it will type the text you typed in the php config file as page title.

hm.. what else.. all the other tags are exactly like HTML.

now if you want to get INTO PHP you need to learn some things.

something i took out: What You Type Is What You Get (WYTIWYG). PHP is mostly logic thing.

Now for example if you want to connect to a database you need a source code writen in PHP.

$dbuser = "user";
$dbpass = "pass";
$dbhost = "localhost";
$dbname = "database";

$mysql_connect['$dbuser','$dbpass','$dbhost','$dbname'] or die(mysql_error);

that's the code for a propper mysql database connection through PHP.

Now to type a text that will be seen somewhere in the website in the config file you will place the text in "..".

Every code you end MUST ALWAYS finish with a ";".


Hope i helped even a little :)

(Sorry if I posted a topic that was already posted by somebody else.. i didn't have the time to search :))

really nice guide man it really helped me

but please make a change ;)

at the mysql_connect

delete all the above

and keep the $mysql_connect

after the ; at the end


mysql_select_db("mydb") or die(mysql_error());


then it will look like this



$mysql_connect["localhost","root","password of mysql if have"] or die(mysql_error());

mysql_select_db("mydb") or die(mysql_error());
