Server-side Scripting

When a client enters an URL, the server-side code specified in the HTML page is executed on a web server before it responds to the user’s request. Web servers are computers that are responsible for providing the web content requested by the user.
Server-side scripts have an extension that tells the web server about the language used. For example: JavaScript files have an extension of .jsp, Perl scripts have an extension of .cgi, PHP scripts have an extension of .php and python scripts have an extension of .py. 

This SQA Computer Science module introduces Server-side Scripting to your students, explaining:

  • Introduction to server-side scripting
  • PHP programming
  • PHP form handling
  • Accessing databases
  • PHP sessions
