Step 1::

Step 1: To use PHP you’ll need a server to work on and test your page… You may already have web space with PHP installed to work on, Or you may already have a server installed on your system, If not you’ll need to install one yourself…. - Bally Chohan

Installing a server::

Step 2::

Step 2: Once you have followed the online instructions for installing and configuring WAMP, you need to check it works!

Testing: Save this as ‘hello.php’ in your ‘www’ folder located within your WAMP folder.
