    I'm not quite too sure what you need to achieve at this moment. PHP should be setup on your server, most likely by your webhost. In regards to PHP usage on forms to pass on data, kindly take a look at the following articles:

    PHP is a general-purpose scripting language that requires knowledge of basic programming. An example looks like this:

    Code:

    <!DOCTYPE html>

    <html>

      <head>

        <meta charset="utf-8" />

        <title>PHP Test</title>

      </head>

      <body>

      <?php

      echo 'Hello World';

      /* echo("Hello World"); works as well, although echo isn't a

      function, but a language construct. In some cases, such

      as when multiple parameters are passed to echo, parameters

      cannot be enclosed in parentheses. */

      ?>  </body>

    </html>
