Installing software is the first step you'll need to take in order to start developing software with PHP. The software you'll need to install depends on your operating system.

A development environment is where you'll write and test your code. There are many different ways to set up a development environment for PHP, but we'll just cover the basics here. First, create a new directory for your project. Then, create a new file in that directory and name it index.php. This will be the main file of your project. Next, open index.php in your text editor and type the following code:


echo "Hello, world!";

Save the file and exit your text editor. Now, open a terminal window and navigate to the directory where you created index.php. Finally, type php index.php into the terminal and hit enter. You should see the output "Hello, world!" printed to the screen!
