    I clearly remember my first php script :) It was a site for video content providers like porn sites (sorry, but it is true). Most interesting parts were billing and video streaming :) Not sure what happened with that site, as I did it more than 5 years ago :)

    I just started learning a short time ago, and my first little script was to test the connection between Apache and PHP after installing them on my laptop. I decided hello world wasn't intense enough, so mine was

    <?php
    //My first php program
    echo "If this works I did it, and I bloody rock!!";
    ?>
    PHP:
    It felt so good to type
    in my browser and see those words come up!!

    I will never forget my first real script, as it was also a pretty big project.

    FriendCrisis

    25+ hours total spent on this.

    I probably posted 4-6 topics in this php forum for help on this script :)

    I barely knew what I was doing, but I managed to pull though.

    Now I plan on developing an even larger script, with not much more knowledge :D

    I remember coding my own forum script, from scratch, but ended up giving up. Probably not my first script, technically, but very close. Anything I wrote before was probably code from tutorials, or derivations. I worked on it time to time in between learning PHP and other side projects, then got involved too much with freelancing. Went back to the script and realised what a mess it was, barely recognised everything and being my first script, it was terribly written. However, it is still functional, just not maintained for so long, along with the rest of my site :p

    Mine as alot of others was a simple "hello world" test.

    Beyond that at my first more serious attempts I created a simple love match calculator based on something someone told me. I later refined it and used functions. lol

    I think my first script was a form submitting something to a database.

    Well of course my first was:
    <?
    echo "Hello World";
    ?>

    Then I read through a tutorial on creating a membership script, since thats something I always wanted to learn. It was a very good tutorial that walked me through step by step. I just kept building onto it until I had a myspace clone site. I never launched it, I just thought of it as a learning experience.

    My first php script was a classified ads site. I was so happy after doing this.

    i took a bid for 1USD (meaning i got paid 1dollar) at rent a coder for a myspace comment code clone site. I learned php and mysql good enought to create the profitable site in 1 week (i wasn't the one who profited). I would never post a link to that site because, eventhough it looks very good, and runs very very fast, man the code is UGLY.

    my latest creation is at linkyme.com/fast-stumbles which is a stumbleupon exchange script and its quite niffty, pretty and doesn't break very easy :D

    its not a hard language to learn and php.net/function is uber handy

    my first script was http://www.amritaworld.com/addyourself.php
    Its completely handcoded and uses mysql.
    hello world is not a script i think, i think the original poster meant 1st script that u actually used somewhere. :p
