Before you start learning PHP you need to have a basic understanding of HTML. If you have some idea it is great. If not there are plenty of HTML articles and tutorials on the internet to help you learn the basic concepts. We had also covered about some basic tutorials you can follow in one of our blogs. Once you know both languages, you can switch between PHP and HTML right in the same document. You can even run PHP from an HTML file.

Some tools you need

For creating PHP pages you can use the same software you use for crating your HTML pages. You would also need an FTP client to transfer files from your computer to your web host. If you already have an HTML website, you perhaps already use an FTP program.

Where to start?

As with knowing anything you need to start right from the beginning and the basics. That is why you need to know about certain basic networking concepts and how the internet works. You also need to know about the FTP server and the HTTP Server. You need to learn about static and dynamic websites and what are required to create them. As already pointed out you need to know about certain HTML tags and how to use them practically. After knowing these you also need to know about javascript and JQUERY.
