PHP Tutorial 4 – Hello World (PHP For Beginners)

Thank you for your Tutorial on PHP. Unfortunately for me, I have to run this online somewhere. Work does not allow me to load XAMPP. Do you know of a good Online IDE or Editor to practice on? Your Help Appreciated.

Excellent video.  Simple and straightforward, and a bite-sized chunk.  Exactly what I was looking for.

Hi guys, I thought I’d check in here after a few years. It looks like Chris hasn’t posted anything in a while, but if you’re reading this, thanks for the tutorials. I think this was the first PHP tutorial I found online and it helped getting me started with the install and first steps. For everyone else, if you’re new to programming/PHP, I wanted to add a couple helpful hints.

– echo (and print) just send text to the browser – that’s it. From the browser’s point of view it’s like reading a regular HTML file. It’s basically the same as opening a file “test.html” with the text “Hello world
This text is bold“. Check the source code (Ctrl + U) to see the output for yourself.

– From some of the questions/comments below it looks like there’s some confusion about HTML tags. You don’t need to read a dozen books on HTML or memorize every obscure specialized tag out there, but you’ll do yourself a huge favor to get comfortable with HTML first. Of all languages PHP is probably the most web-oriented, so you’ll probably be using a lot of HTML. Would have saved myself a lot of frustration that way. 🙂

No haters here, just my two cents.

up till this point i have followed you step by step, so what is wrong?

erke inne says:

Please check if this file is opened in another program, it says when i try to save it

Clayton vd Steen says:

Can anyone please help me? I recreated the file from the vid exactly, but when i try to run it in Chrome it literally displays:
< ?php echo "Hello World"; ?>

Why is this?

Siraj Ahmed says:

Does this run on Sublime Text 3

Terrence Barnes says:

The version of XAMPP I just installed is obviously latest – control panel V3.2.2 – couldn’t find the security stuff ??
I assume also after messing with this, I shut down xampp and must start it again to be able to do stuff.
