In a previous video and post Code Blog in HTML and CSS, we worked on a HTML and CSS Blog. The blog was very basic. So in this video we are going to add PHP to the blog so posts will be loaded from a database. This means, instead of modifying the files of your website over and over again, you can insert a post into a database.

There are a few requirements you need for this tutorial. You need PHP, Apache or other web server software, MySQL and PHPMyAdmin if you are not sure how to code in SQL. These usually come with all hosting companies that you buy from. But if you wish to do this for free, you can download XAMPP or LAMP, there are other options.
