Writing our first lines of PHP!

Initialize (init) our LAMP stack:


lando init

Initializing will create our .lando.yml configuration file that will allow us to control many aspects of our development environment. It should look similar to this:


name: inro-to-php
recipe: lamp
config:
  webroot: .


Now that we have our config in place we can start our app.


lando start

Now that we have our app up and running create an index.php file with the following contents:


<?php

print 'Hello World!';

?>

If you want to see a bunch of information about your PHP set up and and the server environment let's use the PHP function phpinfo():


<?php

phpinfo();

?>

Don't worry too much about all that information. I know it can be overwhelming to look at it! For now just know that there is some useful information there should we need to reference it someday.
