    You seem to have a lot of unrelated questions on PHP. Have you looked at w3schools.com or the PHP manual (PHP: Manual Quick Reference

      Yes, sure, this can be done. If you upload a bit of code in isolation, it's not likely to be of very much help. If a whole site is already there, then sure, you can made changes to see what they do. I'd strongly recommend making a backup, since at some point, you may find that you want to go back to the way things were.

      I'm not sure how much complexity you are trying to absorb all at once; it usually takes time. I had posted some "real life" code in another thread for you, that actually "does" something, while not being completely overwhelming.

    As David mentioned, the best way to do this is setup a development environment on your own computer. You can download and install MAMP (for Mac), WAMP (for Windows), or XAMPP (cross-platform). They are all easy to install and setup, and there is plenty of information available online if you need additional help. This will give you a place to do all your testing, without having to worry about breaking a site that is already up and running.

        Either it's not running, or it's not configured correctly.
