    Can I run PHP locally on my PC?

    Can I run PHP locally on my PC?

    Yes, but note that in addition to PHP you will need a web server running on your PC, too. A very convenient and effective way to do this is to download and install Apachefriends.org's XAMPP, which is an open-source program which will install PHP, Apache web server, MySQL DBMS, and phpMyAdmin onto your PC.

    For PHP code, wrap your text in [ php ] and [ /php ] tags (without the spaces. For text which you want to be indented and with a fixed-spaced font, but not color-coded, use the [ code ] and [ /code ] tags.

    How can I create a CMS (Content Management System) with PHP?

    How can I create a CMS (Content Management System) with PHP?

    This is not a trivial project (unless done very poorly and with little to no consideration for security). Consider using one of the many open-source CMS's which are available. See http://www.opensourcecms.com/ for info on some of the many choices.
