If you want to become decent Hacker or Penetration Tester you need to know PHP. It’s very easy to learn and used in almost every Website. You can’t “hack” a website if you don’t know how it works, otherwise you’re just a script kiddie. We were all beginners once. You can’t become good hacker over the one night. It will take a lot of non-sleep nights and energy drinks. 😛
Well, let’s get back on track.
What is PHP?
The PHP Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) is a programming language that allows web developers to create dynamic content that interacts with databases. PHP is basically used for developing web based software applications.
PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. Originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994, the PHP reference implementation is now produced by The PHP Group. While PHP originally stood for Personal Home Page, it now stands for the recursive backronym PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor.
Now, before starting learning PHP, you have to set up a Working Environment for PHP. If you are on Windows, just download and Install XAMPP or WAMP Server.
