View Full Version : PHP noob

12 Jun 2012, 06:05 AM
Hi everyone.

About time I moved server side. PHP then. Still a bit fuzzy to me. Maybe someone, or ones, can help make it a little clearer to me as to what its role is exactly in web dev...

I know it's part of the dynamic family and, in part, takes care of the server side interactivity, along with MySQL [right..?]

So, as far as specific examples, I think of user logins, comments, the PHP mail function, etc. as well as editable content across multiple pages - footers, headers, etc.

Plus data handling too, I guess.

Is that kind of it, or does it play a deeper role than I realise..?
