Where to put PHP code

When the PHP program runs through your script, it looks for either <?php or <? then runs everything from there until the next ?>

You can configure PHP to run code between <% and %> tags too (ASP) though on IIS this probably isn't the wisest of ideas.

You need to tell your web server to run PHP files through the PHP program, too. This depends on which web server you have, though the PHP package has good instructions for most of the popular types. You should put your PHP code in files with the extension .php and configure your webserver to run .php files through the PHP program, though you can also force PHP to handle all .html files. The advantage to setting up .php as an extension is that files with no PHP code won't go through the PHP program, so you'll get better server performance.

But, this limits us to use .php for php codes doesn't it and we cannot add php codes into HTML if this is done. But if it does improve server performance, I will try if I get a VPS or Dedicated.

Simply solution:
Rename all your .html files to .php, Oh wait I guess that does kinda compromise run speed :D
TO be honest on a PHP server every page should be using PHP for headers and footers (even without MySQL you can use the include or require functions).

Please, write clearly with proper structure. Double spacing makes the text feel un-jointed, Capitalizing Every Word Means People Stop Before Every Word Sub-Consciously Which Is A Pain In The Backside, and use code tags! (The right most styling box).
