Download : PHP - The Right Way
PHP was created to write web applications, but is also useful for scripting command line interface (CLI) programs. Command line PHP programs can help automate common tasks like testing, deployment, and application administrivia.
CLI PHP programs are powerful because you can use your app’s code directly without having to create and secure a web GUI for it. Just be sure not to put your CLI PHP scripts in your public web root!
If you are getting started with PHP, start with the current stable release of PHP 5.61. PHP has added powerful new features over the last few years. Though the incremental version number difference between 5.2 and 5.6 is small, it represents major improvements. If you are looking for a function or its usage, the documentation on the php.net2 website will have the answer.
