Hi Vidit,

In order to use the Live Preview feature you first need a local server in which to run your PHP code from, depending on your operating system you have the following to choose from.

Mac OS X

Once you have this setup you will need to place you PHP file in the root folder which is either htdocs or www depending on the software/route you've chosen.

Hope that helps.
