PHP Help

I'm not interested in the MySQL part of PHP I just want to use php instead of ssi because I heard it's faster. What's a good way I can use server side includes for my site? e.g.: footer/header kind of thing.

Another thing is php really faster than ssi when executing the pages?


  • What are the pros and cons of plain PHP or Classic ASP?

    PHP and Classic ASP are server-side scripting languages. What is wrong with having a website written in this instead of the trendy JavaScript Frameworks like React, Angular etc.? If memory serves me correctly, there is an issue with security where you can post in a text box some script and hack into a system.

    Can we please discuss some pitfalls or drawbacks to having a website written entirely in PHP or ASP? What does a JavaScript framework or Node.js bring to the table that would otherwise be lacking?

    I am just now venturing into a contract where I am tasked with updating and maintaining existing code. All I know right now is that it is written in PHP and Classic ASP. I am in the process of investigating these scripting languages and I want to know what the opinion of other developers are.

    By the way, I am new to Can someone tell me how to make my own post? All I can see is how to make a comment on someone elses post.
