This is a series of basic PHP tutorials, covering everything from the initial steps required to set up a PHP development environment through to specifics on functions, classes and more. It’s a constantly evolving series, and I’ll be adding more over time. For now, here are four initial tutorials - an introduction, an overview of the structure & funcitonality of a PHP file and a couple of tutorials on HTML with PHP and variables.
