How To Run PHP On LocalHost

          PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) is one of the majorly used server side scripting languages. PHP provides many features and allows us to build dynamic web pages. As PHP is server side scripting language, it is difficult to build directly by hosting the files in a paid server. It will be good to build PHP webpages in the localhost with the help of an application which is capable of executing PHP. The possibility to run PHP in localhost is by installing PHP compiler from php.net in your local computer which is a difficult task. There is another method to make PHP run on your local machine’s. It’s by installing an application called XAMPP.

          Installing XAMPP is as easier as clicking a button. XAMPP provides both PHP & MYSQL servers.

          You can download XAMPP application from here. If any queries about installing and executing PHP files, feel free to ask in the comments section.

HTML – How To Make Round Edged div’s

Hi Folks!!,

          Here is a post about making div’s edge’s into rounded one’s. There are inbuilt libraries in some browsers like IE9 and greater than that which allow us to build very attractive web pages. There is another method of making rounded edged div’s in which edges are managed by inserting images. But using the inbuilt attributes is the easier one to create round edges.
      Let’s have a look at these attributes:
  
            border-radius:25px; //IE 9
            -webkit-border-radius:25px; //Chrome and safari
            -moz-border-radius:25px; //Mozilla
            -o-border-radius:25px; //Opera
          Above I have mentioned Radius attributes based on the type of browser’s. By applying the above attributes  on a div, Its border radius will be set to 25px.
