Software for Basic Web Programming


Hello Keithotzkie.

You will need a web server for testing you php and html codes.

For the web server, I suggest you download and install XAMPP (  XAMPP will give you a preconfigured Apache web server with php modules enabled.  It will also have MySQL running.  Everything will be set up for you after installation.

For coding php and html, a simple text editor will do.  You could try Notepad++ ( with its syntax highlighting enabled to help you in coding.  If you prefer a WYSIWYG IDE, try Kompozer (

By the way, all the software suggested above are free to download and use.

Good luck!
