PHP Interview questions


  • What is PHP?

    PHP is a server side scripting language commonly used for web applications. PHP has many frameworks and cms for creating websites.Even a non technical person can cretae sites using its CMS.WordPress,osCommerce are the famus CMS of php.It is also an object oriented programming language like java,C-sharp etc.It is very eazy for learning

  • What is the use of “echo” in php?

    It is used to print a data in the webpage, Example: , The following code print the text in the webpage

  • How to include a file to a php page?

    We can include a file using “include() ” or “require()” function with file path as its parameter.

  • What’s the difference between include and require?

    If the file is not found by require(), it will cause a fatal error and halt the execution of the script. If the file is not found by include(), a warning will be issued, but execution will continue.

  • require_once(), require(), include().What is difference between them?

    require() includes and evaluates a specific file, while require_once() does that only if it has not been included before (on the same page). So, require_once() is recommended to use when you want to include a file where you have a lot of functions for example. This way you make sure you don’t include the file more times and you will not get the “function re-declared” error.

    ‘); })(); ]]>

  • Differences between GET and POST methods ?

    We can send 1024 bytes using GET method but POST method can transfer large amount of data and POST is the secure method than GET method .

  • What is the purpose of the superglobal variable called $_SERVER ?

    $_SERVER is an array and it holds the information about paths, headers, and script locations.

  • How to Detecting request type in PHP ?

    By using $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_METHOD’] method

  • How to declare an array in php?

    Eg : var $arr = array(‘apple’, ‘grape’, ‘lemon’);

  • How can PHP interact to Javascript ?

    PHP cannot interact with javascript directly, since php is server side programming language when javascript is a client side programming language. However we can embbed the php variable values to a javascript code section when it complile at the server or javascript can communicate to a php page via http calls

    NB: Javascript can run at the server side as well using Node.js Server

  • How to manipulate image files using php ?

    GD is library that providing image manipulation capabilities to php, so that we can do so many things such as crop, merge, change grayscale and much more with GD functions

  • How to manipulate video files using php ?

    There is no inbuilt library available in php, However there are some open source libraries that providing these features

    FFmpeg is a complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. We can install this extension in php and use to do variety of tasks

  • What is cron jobs ?

    Cron jobs are scheduled tasks, executed on regular time intervals set by the developer. They work by running preferred scripts. We can set the time intervals for running these scripts. Its not a part of php compiler, We have several ways to do this based on the platform or the hostign control panel type

  • How to sent a POST request from php ( Without using any html ) ?

    You could use cURL, that allows you to connect and communicate to many different types of servers with many different types of protocols such as http, https, ftp etc.

  • How to create a directory if it doesn’t already exist ?

    if (!file_exists(‘path/to/directory’)) {
        mkdir(‘path/to/directory’, 0777, true);

  • How to delete an element from an array ?

    If you want to just delete a single element you can use unset() or alternatively array_splice().

    unset() method won’t change array key when array_splice() method change the array keys automatically

  • What is the use of ‘print’ in php?

    This is not actually a real function, It is a language construct. So you can use with out parentheses with its argument list.
    Example print(‘PHP Interview questions’);
    print ‘Job Interview ‘);

    in_array used to checks if a value exists in an array

  • What is use of count() function in php ?

    count() is used to count all elements in an array, or something in an object

  • What’s the difference between include and require?

    It’s how they handle failures. If the file is not found by require(), it will cause a fatal error and halt the execution of the script. If the file is not found by include(), a warning will be issued, but execution will continue.

  • What is the difference between Session and Cookie?

    The main difference between sessions and cookies is that sessions are stored on the server, and cookies are stored on the user’s computers in the text file format. Cookies can’t hold multiple variable while session can hold multiple variables..We can set expiry for a cookie,The session only remains active as long as the browser is open.Users do not have access to the data you stored in Session,Since it is stored in the server.Session is mainly used for login/logout purpose while cookies using for user activity tracking

    Remove data from a session : unset($_SESSION[‘USER_ID’];

  • what types of loops exist in php?

    for,while,do while and foreach (NB: You should learn its usage)

  • Note:-

    MySQLi (the “i” stands for improved) and PDO (PHP Data Objects) are the MySQL extensions used to connect to the MySQL server in PHP5 or verions, MySQL extension was deprecated in 2012.

    MySQLi only works with MySQL databases whereas PDO will works with 12 other Database systems

    I recommend PDO because, if you want to choose another database instead of MySQL, then you only have to change the connection string and a few queries. But if you are using MySQLi you will need to rewrite the entire code

  • How to create a mysql connection?
    Example (PDO)

    $servername = “localhost”;
    $username = “username”;
    $password = “password”;

    try {
        $conn = new PDO(“mysql:host=$servername;dbname=myDB”, $username, $password);
        // set the PDO error mode to exception
        $conn->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);
        echo “Connected successfully”;
    catch(PDOException $e)
        echo “Connection failed: ” . $e->getMessage();

    Example (MySQLi Object-Oriented)

    $servername = “localhost”;
    $username = “username”;
    $password = “password”;
    $dbname = “myDB”; // Optional

    // Create connection
    $conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);

    // Check connection
    if ($conn->connect_error) {
        die(“Connection failed: ” . $conn->connect_error);
    echo “Connected successfully”;

    Example (MySQLi Procedural)

    $servername = “localhost”;
    $username = “username”;
    $password = “password”;
    $dbname = “myDB”; // Optional

    // Create connection
    $conn = mysqli_connect($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);

    // Check connection
    if (!$conn) {
        die(“Connection failed: ” . mysqli_connect_error());
    echo “Connected successfully”;

  • What are prepared statements?

    A prepared statement or a parameterized statement is a feature used to execute the same SQL queries repeatedly with high efficiency. It consists of two stages: prepare and execute. Prepared statements reduce parsing time because preparation on the query is done only once while the statement is executed multiple times. It is very useful against SQL injections because parameter values won’t alter objective of the statement.

  • How to execute an sql query? How to fetch its result ?
    Example (MySQLi Object-oriented)

    $sql = “SELECT id, firstname, lastname FROM MyGuests”;
    $result = $conn->query($sql); // execute sql query

    if ($result->num_rows > 0) {
        // output data of each row
        while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) { // fetch data from the result set
            echo “id: ” . $row[“id”]. ” – Name: ” . $row[“firstname”]. ” ” . $row[“lastname”]. “
    } else {
        echo “0 results”;

    Example (MySQLi Procedural)

    $sql = “SELECT id, firstname, lastname FROM MyGuests”;
    $result = mysqli_query($conn, $sql); // execute sql query

    if (mysqli_num_rows($result) > 0) {
        // output data of each row
        while($row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result)) { // fetch data from the result set
            echo “id: ” . $row[“id”]. ” – Name: ” . $row[“firstname”]. ” ” . $row[“lastname”]. “
    } else {
        echo “0 results”;

    Example (PDO)

    Method 1:USE PDO query method

    $stmt = $db->query(‘SELECT id FROM Employee’);
    $row_count = $stmt->rowCount();
    echo $row_count.’ rows selected’;

    Method 2: Statements With Parameters

    $stmt = $db->prepare(“SELECT id FROM Employee WHERE name=?”);
    $rows = $stmt->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);

  • Write a program using while loop $x = 1;

  • What is the use of explode() function ?

    Syntax : array explode ( string $delimiter , string $string [, int $limit ] );
    This function breaks a string into an array. Each of the array elements is a substring of string formed by splitting it on boundaries formed by the string delimiter.

  • What is the difference between explode() and str_split() functions?

    str_split function splits string into array by regular expression. Explode splits a string into array by string.

    It is used to generate random numbers.If called without the arguments it returns a pseudo-random integer between 0 and getrandmax(). If you want a random number between 6 and 12 (inclusive), for example, use rand(6, 12).This function does not generate cryptographically safe values, and should not be used for cryptographic uses. If you want a cryptographically secure value, consider using openssl_random_pseudo_bytes() instead.

  • what is the use of isset() in php?

    This function is used to determine if a variable is set and is not NULL

  • What is the difference between mysqli_fetch_array() and mysqli_fetch_assoc() ?

    mysqli_fetch_assoc function Fetch a result row as an associative array, While mysqli_fetch_array() fetches an associative array, a numeric array, or both

  • What is the importance of “method” attribute in a html form?

    “method” attribute determines how to send the form-data into the server.There are two methods, get and post. The default method is get.This sends the form information by appending it on the URL.Information sent from a form with the POST method is invisible to others and has no limits on the amount of information to send.

  • What is the importance of “action” attribute in a html form?

    The action attribute determines where to send the form-data in the form submission.

  • What is the use of “enctype” attribute in a html form?

    Here are three basic types of runtime errors in PHP:

    • 1. Notices: These are trivial, non-critical errors that PHP encounters while executing a script – for example, accessing a variable that has not yet been defined. By default, such errors are not displayed to the user at all – although you can change this default behavior.
    • 2. Warnings: These are more serious errors – for example, attempting to include() a file which does not exist. By default, these errors are displayed to the user, but they do not result in script termination.
    • 3. Fatal errors: These are critical errors – for example, instantiating an object of a non-existent class, or calling a non-existent function. These errors cause the immediate termination of the script, and PHP’s default behavior is to display them to the user when they take place.

  • What are the different errors in PHP?

    In PHP, there are three types of runtime errors, they are:

    These are important errors. Example: When we try to include () file which is not available. These errors are showed to the user by default but they will not result in ending the script.
    These errors are non-critical and trivial errors that come across while executing the script in PHP. Example: trying to gain access the variable which is not defined. These errors are not showed to the users by default even if the default behavior is changed.
    Fatal errors:
    These are critical errors. Example: instantiating an object of a class which does not exist or a non-existent function is called. These errors results in termination of the script immediately and default behavior of PHP is shown to them when they take place. Twelve different error types are used to represent these variations internally.

  • What is a REST API?

    An API is an interface which can be a program or a web application which is capable to communicate to other websites or programs

    REST stands for REpresentational State Transfer and is an architectural style for exposing your program using existing protocols, typically HTTP

    A REST API utilize HTTP Methods like GET/POST/DELETE/UPDATE etc to get or set data in a server

  • Give me the list of function you are usually using when you debug your PHP scripts ?

    During the development time, i will put error_reporting(E_ALL); ini_set(‘display_errors’, 1); on the top of the php script to display all the errors and notices.

  • How can we resolve the errors like ‘Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded’ ?

    We can use the following code to increase the maximum execution time of the script 

    ini_set(‘max_execution_time’, 300);

    We can also set the max_execution_time for all the scripts in a website by the following code in .htaccess file

    php_value max_execution_time 300   

    But, we must try to optimize the php script to avoid this kind of situations as a part good user experience.

  • How to avoid email sent through php getting into spam folder?

    There’s no special method of keeping your emails from being identified as spam. However we can consider some points that cause this problem. Let me explain few common reasons.

    1. sending mail using the `mail` function with minimum parameters

        We must use all possible mail headers like `MIME-version`, `Content-type`, `reply address`, `from address` etc in order to avoid this situation

    2. Not using a proper SMTP mail script like PHPmailer or SwiftMailer with an actual e-mail credentials including username, password etc

        If we are able to send e-mail from an actual e-mail account using an SMTP mailer script with username and password, then we can avoid  

    If you’re on a shared web server, consider buying a unique IP address for yourself, because others using your IP may have gotten your IP blacklisted for spam. Do not send more than 250 emails to each provider per hour.

    Give your users unsubscribe link and view in browser link, if they cannot see the email properly they will mark you as spam, if they no longer want emails for you they will mark you as spam. 

    How can we prevent SQL injection in PHP?

    Most popular way is, use prepared statements and parameterized queries. These are SQL statements that are sent to and parsed by the database server separately from any parameters. This way it is impossible for an attacker to inject malicious SQL.

    You basically have two options to achieve this:

    1. Using PDO (for any supported database driver):

      $stmt = $pdo->prepare(‘SELECT * FROM employees WHERE name = :name’); $stmt->execute(array(‘name’ => $name)); foreach ($stmt as $row) { // do something with $row }

    2. Using MySQLi (for MySQL):

      $stmt = $dbConnection->prepare(‘SELECT * FROM employees WHERE name = ?’);
      $stmt->bind_param(‘s’, $name); $stmt->execute(); $result = $stmt->get_result(); while ($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) { // do something with $row } If you’re connecting to a database other than MySQL, there is a driver-specific second option that you can refer to (e.g. pg_prepare() and pg_execute() for PostgreSQL). PDO is the universal option.

  • How to fix “Headers already sent” error in PHP ?

    No output before sending headers. there should not be any output (i.e. echo.. or HTML codes) before the header(…….);command. remove any white-space(or newline) before  tags. After header(…); you must use exit;

  • How to return JSON from a PHP Script ?

    We have to set the Content-Type header with application/json  as the value and print a valid JSON data using echo method

    For example

    $data = /** whatever you’re serializing **/; header(‘Content-Type: application/json’); echo json_encode($data);

  • How can we fix “Memory size Exhausted” errors ?

    You can fix it at run time or can be set required size on the php.ini file

    ini_set(‘memory_limit’, ‘512M’); // In a php script at run time

  • When to use self over $this?

    Use $this to refer to the current object. Use self to refer to the current class. In other words, use $this->member for non-static members, use self::$member for static members.

  • How to redirect the user to one page to another using php ?
