Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the files, part of Code Clinic: PHP.
- The solution to this task involves…several hundred lines of PHP code,…so I won't type it all out.…But if you'd like to work along with me,…you'll need to organize the exercise files like I have.…I've got the exercise files in a folder on my desktop,…so if we just open that.…Inside there is a folder problem zero two.…Those are all the files for this particular task.…So if we open that,…then open zero two, underscore, zero three,…these are all the files that we need to begin.…
So we need to select all of those…and then copy them,…and they need to be pasted into your testing server.…I'm using a folder called PHP Clinic for this series.…That's inside my testing server root,…so let's go there,…and I've got a folder called problem zero two.…At the moment it's empty,…so just paste all of the files into there.…So let's open my editing program…and see what we've got.…If we open the problem zero two folder,…inside there is a folder called foundation PHP.…
If we open that, inside there is another one…called imaging handling…
David introduces challenges and provides an overview of his solutions in PHP. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.
Visit other courses in the series to see how to solve the exact same challenges in languages like C#, C++, Java, Python, and Ruby.

Q: I'm encountering script errors message with the prime_dates.php file used in the "Priming the date_record column" movie in this course. How can I resolve these errors?
A: To avoid script errors, use bindValue() instead of bindParam() in
Line 9 of the prime_dates.php file. You can also download the latest
copy of the exercise files, which corrects this issue for you. For a
more in-depth explanation of the difference between bindValue() and
bindParam(), check out the "Binding input and output values" video (http://www.lynda.com/PHP-
