From the Preface

Now more than ever, the web is a major vehicle for corporate and personal communications. Websites carry satellite images of Earth in its entirety; search for life in outer space; house personal photo albums, business shopping carts, and product lists; and so much more! Many of those websites are driven by PHP, an open source scripting language primarily designed for generating HTML content.

Since its inception in 1994, PHP has swept the web and continues its phenomenal growth today. The millions of websites powered by PHP are testament to its popularity and ease of use. Everyday people can learn PHP and build powerful dynamic websites with it.

The core PHP language (version 7+) features powerful string- and array-handling facilities, as well as greatly improved support for object-oriented programming.

With the use of standard and optional extension modules, a PHP application can interact with a database such as MySQL or Oracle, draw graphs, create PDF files, and parse XML files. You can run PHP on Windows, which lets you control other Windows applications (such as Word and Excel with COM) or interact with databases using ODBC.

This book is a guide to the PHP language. When you finish it (we won’t tell you how it ends!), you will know how the PHP language works, how to use the many powerful extensions that come standard with PHP, and how to design and build your own PHP web applications.


PHP is a melting pot of cultures. Web designers appreciate its accessibility and convenience, while programmers appreciate its flexibility, power, diversity, and speed. Both cultures need a clear and accurate reference to the language. If you are a (web) programmer, then this book is for you. We show the big picture of the PHP language, and then discuss the details without wasting your time. The many examples clarify the textual explanations; the practical programming advice and many style tips will help you become not just a PHP programmer, but a good PHP programmer.

If you’re a web designer, you will appreciate the clear and useful guides to specific technologies, such as JSON, XML, sessions, PDF generation, and graphics. And you’ll be able to quickly get the information you need from the language chapters, which explain basic programming concepts in simple terms.

This edition has been fully revised to cover the latest features of PHP version 7.4.

Assumptions This Book Makes

This book assumes you have a working knowledge of HTML. If you don’t know HTML, you should gain some experience with simple web pages before you try to tackle PHP. For more information on HTML, we recommend HTML & XHTML: The Definitive Guide by Chuck Musciano and Bill Kennedy (O’Reilly).
