How do I work with PHP on my PC?
I mean: I have Atom-Text Editor on my PC, that I used to learn and exercise with HTML and CSS. Can I do the same now with PHP? Or do I have to install an other program to code in PHP locally? I'm asking this cause I would like to exercise by myself and not always using the Treehouse workspace. Thanks

To work with PHP on your computer you'll need to install a local server. There are a number of options for you to do this such as XAMPP, WAMP or Desktop Server.
These will use a certain location on your desktop where you can store files and use it like you would a web host. It'll allow you to store and use PHP files as if you were online.
