What happens before you finally viewed this page?

Posted 8 CommentsPosted in PHP
Since past 1 week or so I am trying to make a small tiny light weight web server of my own, and for the same I have been referring to dozens of papers, websites, people and what not. I still haven't finished making one, I am still toggling between Java and Python, since both seems to satisfy my needs and unfortunately I am master in none. While I was digging deep into the theory of how can I make a web server, I cleared many other concepts of mine, which finally leads to this post. "What happens before you finally...

Hello Friends, Since past few weeks I have been pushed into something which I have never favored i.e. using a framework for my development. Using a framework can become even more harder if you know all the actual HTML, CSS, JS, PHP coding. Then you just wonder WHY? WHY? WHY? Anyways I had to do it using Symfony PHP framework and there was no way out. As I couldn't find much help outside http://symfony-project.com , it made even more difficult for me to implement and understand symfony.  So I thought of writing a tutorial, which can help many others like me...

Here I will explain in short how can we achieve this on windows and unix both: APC (Alternate...

But before I go ahead, I would like to thank my good friend Rajib...
