What stands first when it comes to Web Development Language?
Of course, it’s PHP!
PHP is a popular general-purpose scripting language that is specially designed for Web Development purposes. Originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994, PHP reference implementation is now produced by The PHP Group.
Why is PHP so special you may ask?
Well, along with executing any type of data including binary data, HTML data, PHP holds the existence of Various web template systems, web content management systems, and web frameworks that can be employed to orchestrate or facilitate the generation of that response. Hence, the web development world can never think of a step forward without PHP nowadays.
You already understand now that PHP skill is a basic need when it comes to web development. Right? We are well aware of it, and that’s why here comes the top 20 PHP interview questions that have been asked in most of the PHP interviews in 2020. Let us walk you through it!
Both include() and require() function demands a specific file to work on. But on require() function the process exits with a lethal error if the file can’t be included. On the other hand, include() statement passes through and jumps to the next step in the execution.
$_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"] command helps us to get to the IP address of the client.
unset() is used for setting a variable to “undefined”. On the other hand, unlink() is used to delete a file being passed to it from the file system.
First, you need to check if “display_errors” is equal “on” in the php.ini or declare “ini_set('display_errors', 1)” in your script.
After that, include “error_reporting(E_ALL)” in your code to display all types of error messages during the script execution.
Traits are a mechanism that allows you to create reusable code in languages like PHP that does not support multiple inheritances. A Trait cannot be instantiated on its own.

There are 3 types of arrays in PHP:
exit() or die() function is used to exit from the current script after displaying the error message.
You can use gettype() function to check the data type of any variable.
To increase the maximum execution time of a script, you have to change the value of the max_execution_time directive in the php.ini file.
