What do I need to know about using PHP pages?

PHP pages are required in order to include content management with your site. In most cases, this will not be a problem, but you will need to understand what the limitations that you may come across.

  • Browsing PHP pages on your local computer
    PHP pages cannot be viewed on a typical computer without setting up a PHP testing server. For most Site Sculptor users, this will not be a problem since you need to upload your site's files to your live (hosting provider's) server before you can set up the content management. Your hosting provider will most likely be running a PHP server by default.
