How To: Execute, Run PHP Scripts On Your iPhone, Android

For those who can't just seem to enjoy the base function of their iPhone or Android, here's another cool application you can install so you can start learning PHP web programming straight from your Android and iPhone device. This means you can run/execute PHP scripts straight from your iPhone and Android device offline (which is normally done in PC).

The project is called PHP for Android, a server package for Android so you can start building web apps straight from your mobile phone device. The idea here is to turn your Android phone into a web server; you have the Apache as the web server, MySQL as database and PHP as programming language. Think of PHP for Android as PAMP (short for Personal Apache MySQL PHP for Nokia), where you can execute PHP scripts straight from your Symbian s60 device offline. (See my previous post PAMP for Symbian: Turn Your Nokia Symbian s60 Phone Into Web Server for more details).

For download and installation instruction, visit the official site of PHP for Android Project (PFA) and start building dynamic websites right on your Android device.
