PHP-enabled web pages are treated just like regular HTML pages and you can create and edit them the same way you normally create regular HTML pages.
I assume that your server has activated support for PHP and that all files ending in .php are handled by PHP.
If your server supports PHP, then you do not need to do anything. Just create your .php files, put them in your web directory and the server will automatically parse them for you. There is no need to compile anything nor do you need to install any extra tools. Think of these PHP-enabled files as simple HTML files with a whole new family of magical tags that let you do all sorts of things. Most web hosts offer PHP support, but if your host does not, consider reading the PHP Links section for resources on finding PHP enabled web hosts.
If you don't have anything installed on your system then you need to install the web server Apache and of course PHP. You will most likely want to install a database as well, such as MySQL.

If you don't have web server and database then you can find a site which will provide you hosts PHP and MySQL apps. this service they are providing for free upto 2012. At that point they'll change over to a fee-based service. However, in the meantime, it's a great place to do anything from demo and sandbox right up to posting sites for real.

Their pitch is as follows:

"This is absolutely free, there is no catch. You get 350 MB of disk space and 100 GB bandwidth. They also have cPanel control panel which is amazing and easy to use website builder. Moreover, there is no any kind of advertising on your pages."

Check it out using this link:


Thanks and good luck!
