Server-side Scripting

The main use and most widely employed function of PHP is server-side scripting. Three components are necessary to make server-side scripting work:

Web Server
Web Browser
PHP Parser

The first thing you will need to do is run a web browser that has a connection to a PHP installation. You can then run the code through a web server like Apache.

Command Line Scripting

When using command line scripting you are able to run a PHP script without the use of any server or web browser. This type of script is run through the PHP parser and is usually executed using corn for Linux based systems, or the task scheduler for Windows.
