    Hello, I want to insert some images into a background using php.

    I know normally for background images you do this.
    <body style="background: url(http://www.website.com/a.gif);">

    Where does the PHP go, doing it with PHP? Please let me know, thanks very much.

    <?php
    echo "<body style='background: url(http://www.website.com/a.gif);'>";
    ?>
    
    PHP:
    Basically, it is the same as the HTML you are using, although you could save that in an external .php file and use include(),

    you can also insert directely html lines in a php file.
    End the php section with the ?> tag, write yours html line en open an other php section with <?php tag.

    for example :
    <?php
    include "conf.inc.php";
    ?>
    <body style="background: url(http://www.website.com/a.gif);">
    <?
    echo "hello world";
    ?>

    Not one person asked why are you doing this with PHP.

    Why would you? Take a look at how to utilize CSS with your HTML.

    You can simply do

    <body style="background: url(http://www.website.com/<?php echo 'a.gif' ?>);">

    and replace "echo 'a.gif'" with any PHP code of your choice that calculates the right picture. You can also echo a variable that was set previously.
