Basic Code of PHP:

Lot of computer languages have basic tags for coding, just like HTML have basic opening and closing tags as below:

<html></html>, <body></body>, <h1></h1> and so on, same as PHP also have basic codes too. 

<?php ?> each and every php script will be placed into <?php ?> tags. if you don’t have PHP script inside the opening <?php and closing ?> PHP tags it will not work.

HTML VS PHP:

The basic difference between HTML and PHP is as HTML is markup language while PHP is scripting languge. HTML could create static websites only while PHP is able to create dynamic websites. Static websites mean these types of websites will not be functional they will be designed only for display purpose. These types of websites can not perform any kind of task. At the other hand PHP websites are dynamic, they could perform any kind of task, like calculation, transactions, trading, banking, accounting and much more. Live examples of PHP are WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, gsmarena.com and lot of other websites. 

Work with PHP:

As I told you in previous paragraph that PHP is scripting language. so that it will not work with your normal windows. You must install PHP interpreter or PHP scripting engine to work with your local computer. I suggest you just purchase any cheap hosting plan and start your practice in this account online.
