Transcript of "Starting With Php"

  1. 1. PHP – Starting with PHP Harit Kothari [email_address]
  2. 2. Agenda <ul><li>HTML/XHTML and HTTP Basics Review </li></ul><ul><li>PHP and the Web Server Architecture Model </li></ul><ul><li>Overview of PHP Capabilities </li></ul>
  3. 3. HTML/XHTML and HTTP Basics Review <ul><li>HTML/XHTML – a language that every browser knows. </li></ul><ul><li>HTTP – a protocol that every machine uses to talk with others. </li></ul>
  4. 4. HTML – Hyper Text Markup Language <ul><li>Basically designed and used as a common language to retrieve documents from web. </li></ul><ul><li>More features (called as tags) added later. </li></ul><ul><li>Now is replaced by dynamic languages (like PHP) in some places. </li></ul><ul><li>Tags are basically used to organise contents of document. </li></ul>
  5. 5. XHTML – eXtended HTML <ul><li>A strict format of HTML </li></ul><ul><li>Each starting tag must have ending tag. </li></ul><ul><li>There are strict rules to be followed. </li></ul><ul><li>e.g. In HTML <br> is allowed, but in XHTML it must be <BR/> Similarly: HTML XHTML <p> <P/> <li>... <LI>......</LI> </li></ul>
  6. 6. HTTP – HyperText Transfer Protocol <ul><li>Port no. 80 </li></ul><ul><li>Simple, text based protocol </li></ul><ul><li>Stateless </li></ul><ul><li>Two most frequently used methods (operations) – GET and POST </li></ul>
  7. 7. HTTP Format <ul><li>Request form </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Request line (e.g. GET /images/logo.gif HTTP/1.1) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Headers (e.g. Accept-Language: en) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>An optional message body </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. HTTP Request in details <ul><li>Request method – e.g. GET / POST / PUT </li></ul><ul><li>URL – where to send the request </li></ul><ul><li>HTTP version – e.g. 1.1 </li></ul><ul><li>POST /my_dir/my_sub_dir/my_file.htm HTTP/1.1 </li></ul>
  9. 9. Request methods -1 <ul><li>HEAD Request only headers for an GET request, not actual resource / data. Used to retrieve meta-data. </li></ul><ul><li>GET Request actual resource. Used as a method to send data along with request. This data is shown on address bar of a browser! </li></ul><ul><li>POST Request actual resource. Most common method used to send data to be processed by the resource. This data is not shown in address bar, is inserted in request body. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Request methods -2 <ul><li>PUT Uploads a resource. </li></ul><ul><li>DELETE Removes / Delets a specified resource. </li></ul><ul><li>TRACE Redisplays a request, to check if some server in midway to the destination has changed any value. </li></ul><ul><li>OPTIONS Returns methods supported by the server's specific resource. Used to check server's functionality / support. </li></ul><ul><li>CONNECT Converts the request connection to a transparent TCP/IP tunnel. Not much secure. </li></ul>
  11. 11. HTTP Format <ul><li>Response form </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Status line </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Headers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>An optional message body </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. HTTP Response Status Line <ul><li>HTTP Version </li></ul><ul><li>Status code of 3 digits </li></ul><ul><li>Status description </li></ul>
  13. 13. HTTP Response – Status details <ul><li>200 OK Request successful </li></ul><ul><li>302 Moved Permanently URL is no longer used by server </li></ul><ul><li>404 Page not found Requested document / resource not found </li></ul><ul><li>500 Internal server error Some error on server </li></ul>
  14. 14. Request / Response Headers <ul><li>Exchange of information between client and server. </li></ul><ul><li>Each lie : Header name + value </li></ul><ul><li>Classification of header lines: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>General header </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Request header </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Response header </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Entity header </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. General Header <ul><li>Can be present in both – request and response. </li></ul><ul><li>Header Description </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cache-control Information about caching </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Connection Connection should be either closed or kept open. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Date Current date </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. Request Header <ul><li>Specific to request messages. </li></ul><ul><li>Header Description </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Accept Message format that is supported by client </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Accept-language Language that client accept </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Host Host and port number of client </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If-modified-since Send the document if newer than specified date </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If-unmodified-since Send the document if older than specified date </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Response Header <ul><li>Specific to response message </li></ul><ul><li>Header Description </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Age Age of document </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Retry-after Date after which server is available </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sever Sever name + port </li></ul></ul>
  18. 18. Entity Header <ul><li>Mostly used in response message </li></ul><ul><li>Header Description </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Content-encoding Encoding scheme </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Content-language Language </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Content-length Length </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Last-modified Last modification date and time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Content-type Type of media document </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. HTTP Example <ul><li>Request GET http://www.sachinism.com/index.htm HTTP/1.0 Accept: text/html Accept: image/jpeg </li></ul><ul><li>Response HTTP/1.0 200 OK Date: Thu, 20-Feb-08 09.00.00 GMT Server: Challenger MIME-version: 1.0 Content-length: 2048 << HTML Body >> </li></ul>
  20. 20. PHP <ul><li>PHP Hyper Processor or Personal Hypertext Processor </li></ul><ul><li>A server side programming language </li></ul><ul><li>Emerged as leading language in server side application development since a decade! </li></ul><ul><li>HTML can simply display data (static) whereas PHP can be executed on server and the result is displayed on client (Dynamic) - will discuss later in this session </li></ul>
  21. 21. Web Server Architecture Model <ul><li>Client server model. </li></ul><ul><li>Like a query session after a lecture! </li></ul><ul><li>Clients send request, server sends reply to the requested. </li></ul><ul><li>Our web browser is typical client, which formats HTTP (or HTTPS etc.) request and sends to a server. </li></ul><ul><li>A server (e.g. Apache on www.sachinism.com ) formats response and sends back to the browser. </li></ul>
  22. 22. A representation of client-server talk - 1 <ul><ul><li>Request GET http://www.sachinism.com/index.htm HTTP/1.0 Accept: text/html Accept: image/jpeg </li></ul></ul>Client Server To Server, “Can you please give me index.htm?”
  23. 23. A representation of client-server talk - 2 <ul><ul><li>Response HTTP/1.0 200 OK Date: Thu, 20-Feb-08 09.00.00 GMT Server: Challenger MIME-version: 1.0 Content-length: 2048 <<HTML Body >> </li></ul></ul>Client Server To Client, “ Sure, here it is...” Contents of index.htm
  24. 24. A representation of client-server talk - 3 Client Server Wow... I am lucky to get index.htm so fast! Actual webpage, that can be displayed on browser
  25. 25. Role of PHP - advantage <ul><li>Everything goes personalise. i.e. User settings, look and feel, some private data etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides user interactivity </li></ul><ul><li>Allows to create own web applications that can be executed remotely! </li></ul><ul><li>Examples : any website provides login and thereafter services, live cricket scores on sachinism.com </li></ul>
  26. 26. Summary <ul><li>Internet era began with static webpages written in HTML, which required strict rules – created XHTML. </li></ul><ul><li>Every web based application (essentially webpages / websites) are communicating on HTTP which follow specific format. </li></ul><ul><li>User requests something to server and server sends back relevant data – implements client server architecture. </li></ul><ul><li>Later on, server side programming languages like PHP adds user interactivity, personalisation of websites. </li></ul>
  27. 27. Whats next? <ul><li>Starting up with practical PHP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Obtaining, Installing and Configuring PHP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Obtaining PHP Source Code </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Installing PHP from Binary Packages </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic Extensions, Checking Install with phpinfo() Function. </li></ul></ul>
