PHP is a server side scripting language that is cross-platform and open source. If you have any experience with C programming, you'll find that the syntax of PHP is very similar to C. Variables don't need to be declared before use, but it's function syntax and control structures are C-like. PHP is embedded in html, but is processed by the server before the page is viewed by the user. There are many good beginning tutorials already on the web so I won't cover those issues. Instead, I'll go over practical examples and solve hypothetical problems.

I've found the documentation at the PHP site to be difficult sometimes. The reference is great, but there aren't enough examples. The tutorial is too short and only covers a few things. The tutorials linked below are better.
