    Its impossible. The server parses the PHP into HTML before its sent to the browser so its not possible.

    Sometimes PHP stops working and you can view the PHP code. You could try overloading PHP to see if it crashes lol :D

    I don't think the source codes of server programming languages like PHP and ASP, can be viewed directly in the browser.

    The code is processed on the server and the result is sent to the client, so there no way to see it.

    So easy... Just use a browser that doesn't support php. It will automatically start downloading that php file because it doesn't know how to open it.

    BEST OF LUCK

    You will not be able to make a clone of a site if you don't have FTP or WHM access to download the php files or script. You won't be able to view the PHP code in Firefox using Firebug. I suggest the following book if you want to actually learn PHP programming:

    http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-PHP..._8?ie=UTF8&qid=1359572591&sr=8-8&keywords=PHP

    You should use the site as inspiration but don't copy or replicated it exactly.

    It is possible, but only if the php pages want you to, f.example with a wrong ending.. Try to make your own php script and save it as index.phps, then the php is not working and you can see the source code :)
    But ofc, it is impossible to see others php scripts unless you can hack their file names ^^

    @viisingh14, There are no such browsers that support PHP. I remember you that PHP means Pre-HyperText Processor whici derivates from (notice the HyperText) HTML (Hyper Text Markup LANGUAGE).

    Now what that means is, PHP has the ability to process data and render it into HTML. Thats why it is called Pre-HyperText.

    @rohuhottie, the answer to your question is quite simple. Getting the sourcecode of a php file implies automatically either hacking the server via Exploits (there's no acronym in this), RFI (Remote File Inclusion), CSRF (Cross Site Request Forgery), XSS (Cross Site Scripting - which mostly works with JavaScript, not enough to see a PHP file). Though, RFI would be a better option, but, it's old, so all the new scripts that are globally used like phpMyAdmin (which I remember of version 2.1x) that were vulnerable to this , are vulnerable no more because , obviously, people could exploit them and could get a file manager via your SQL manager. Thats the reason they are currently developing the 3.5 version (which is stable by the way). You could keep informed of 0day exploits at milw0rm or things like that , but I personally suggest you start learning PHP and just clone the script on yourself or just hire some of us to do it.

    Hope it helped and I'm sorry if your hopes vanished reading through all these posts.
    Nonetheless, http://php.net is awaiting with a really big documentation.

    OMG some people realy think you can download a live running php script? LOL

    PHP is as said many times before in this topic sending the processed data to the user, even if the browser doesn't support PHP (as it is weird coz its just HTML) it will NOT save the original SOURCE CODE of the PHP file itselve, only the data the php parser sends to your IP adres (browser)

    More info @ http://www.php.net/manual/en/intro-whatcando.php

    PHP runs all the code on the server and then returns the output to the browser. It's a great language to learn though... quite easy and fun.
