Are you working with multiple devices like iPhone, Android and Web then take a look at this post that explains you how to develop a RESTful API in PHP.  Representational state transfer (REST) is a software system for distributing the data to different kind of applications. The web service system produce status code response in JSON or XML format.
Create a RESTful Services API in PHP.

Download Script

Sample database users table columns user_id, user_fullname, user_email, user_password and user_status.

`user_id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`user_fullname` varchar(25) NOT NULL,
`user_email` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
`user_password` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
`user_status` tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT ‘0’,
PRIMARY KEY (`user_id`)

Rest API Class: api.php
Contains simple PHP code, here you have to modify database configuration details like database name, username and password.

require_once(“”);class API extends REST
public $data = “”;
const DB_SERVER = “localhost”;
const DB_USER = “Database_Username”;
const DB_PASSWORD = “Database_Password”;
const DB = “Database_Name”;private $db = NULL;

public function __construct()
parent::__construct();// Init parent contructor
$this->dbConnect();// Initiate Database connection

//Database connection
private function dbConnect()
$this->db = mysql_connect(self::DB_SERVER,self::DB_USER,self::DB_PASSWORD);

//Public method for access api.
//This method dynmically call the method based on the query string
public function processApi()
$func = strtolower(trim(str_replace(“/”,””,$_REQUEST[‘rquest’])));
if((int)method_exists($this,$func) > 0)
// If the method not exist with in this class, response would be “Page not found”.

private function login()

private function users()

private function deleteUser()

//Encode array into JSON
private function json($data)
return json_encode($data);

// Initiiate Library
$api = new API;

Login POST
Displaying users records from the users table Rest API URL http://localhost/rest/login/. This Restful API login status works with status codes if status code 200 login success else status code 204 shows fail message. For more status code information check in download script.

private function login()
// Cross validation if the request method is POST else it will return “Not Acceptable” status
if($this->get_request_method() != “POST”)
}$email = $this->_request[’email’];
$password = $this->_request[‘pwd’];// Input validations
if(!empty($email) and !empty($password))
if(filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)){
$sql = mysql_query(“SELECT user_id, user_fullname, user_email FROM users WHERE user_email = ‘$email’ AND user_password = ‘”.md5($password).”‘ LIMIT 1″, $this->db);
if(mysql_num_rows($sql) > 0){
$result = mysql_fetch_array($sql,MYSQL_ASSOC);

// If success everythig is good send header as “OK” and user details
$this->response($this->json($result), 200);
$this->response(”, 204); // If no records “No Content” status

// If invalid inputs “Bad Request” status message and reason
$error = array(‘status’ => “Failed”, “msg” => “Invalid Email address or Password”);
$this->response($this->json($error), 400);

Users GET
Displaying users records from the users table Rest API URL http://localhost/rest/users/

private function users()
// Cross validation if the request method is GET else it will return “Not Acceptable” status
if($this->get_request_method() != “GET”)
$sql = mysql_query(“SELECT user_id, user_fullname, user_email FROM users WHERE user_status = 1”, $this->db);
if(mysql_num_rows($sql) > 0)
$result = array();
while($rlt = mysql_fetch_array($sql,MYSQL_ASSOC))
$result[] = $rlt;
// If success everythig is good send header as “OK” and return list of users in JSON format
$this->response($this->json($result), 200);
$this->response(”,204); // If no records “No Content” status

Delete user function based on the user_id value deleting the particular record from the users table Rest API URL http://localhost/rest/deleteUser/

private function deleteUser()
{if($this->get_request_method() != “DELETE”){
$id = (int)$this->_request[‘id’];
if($id > 0)
mysql_query(“DELETE FROM users WHERE user_id = $id”);
$success = array(‘status’ => “Success”, “msg” => “Successfully one record deleted.”);
$this->response(”,204); // If no records “No Content” status

Since its release in 1995, MySQL has became one of the most commonly used database in Internet world. A lot of small and medium businesses uses MySQL as their backend db.  Its popularity for use with web applications is closely tied to the popularity of PHP, which is often combined with MySQL. Wikipedia runs on MediaWiki software, which is written in PHP and uses a MySQL database. Several high-traffic web sites use MySQL for its data storage and logging of user data, including Flickr, Facebook, Wikipedia, Google, Nokia and YouTube.

MySQL provide a great command line utility to take backup of your MySQL database and restore it. mysqldump command line utility is available with MySQL installation (bin directory) that can be used to achieve this.

1. Getting backup of a MySQL database using mysqldump.

Use following command line for taking backup of your MySQL database using mysqldump utility.

mysqldump –-user [user name] –-password=[password] [database name] > [dump file]


mysqldump –u[user name] –p[password] [database name] > [dump file]


mysqldump –-user root –-password=myrootpassword db_test > db_test.sql


mysqldump –uroot –pmyrootpassword db_test > db_test.sql

2. Backup multiple databases in MySQL.

mysqldump –u[user name] –p[password] [database name 1] [database name 2] .. > [dump file]


mysqldump –-user root –-password=myrootpassword db_test db_second db_third > db_test.sql

3. Backup all databases in MySQL.

shell> mysqldump –u[user name] –p[password] –all-databases > [dump file]

4. Backup a specific table in MySQL.

shell> mysqldump --user [username] --password=[password] [database name] [table name] 
> /tmp/sugarcrm_accounts_contacts.sql


shell> mysqldump --user root --password=myrootpassword db_test customers 
> db_test_customers.sql

5. Restoring MySQL database.

The mysqldump utility is used only to take the MySQL dump. To restore the database from the dump file that you created in previous step, use mysql command.

shell> mysql --u [username] --password=[password] [database name] < [dump file]


shell> mysql --user root --password=myrootpassword new_db < db_test.sql

Intelligent PHP Editor

PhpStorm provides rich and intelligent code editor for PHP with syntax highlighting, extended code formatting configuration, on-the-fly error checking, and smart code completion.

PHP 5.4 Language Features Support

PHP 5.4 is now fully supported, including traits and all the new syntax improvements: class member access on instantiation, short array syntax, array dereferencing on function call, binary literals, expressions in static calls, etc.:

PHP code completion

Automatic code completion (invoked on typing) finalizes classes, methods, variable names, and PHP keywords, plus commonly used names for fields and variables depending on their type.

Code completion


Code completion supports array indexes in PHP code.

Code completion

PHPDoc support

PhpStorm editor respects PHPDoc in your code and provides appropriate code completion suggestions based on @property, @method and @var annotations.

When you edit PHPDoc for your code, variable names and types are auto-completed from the corresponding code blocks.

PHP code refactorings also consider PHPDocs to keep them up to date.


Smart Duplicated Code Detector

Added for all major supported languages including even CSS and HTML. Go to Code|Locate Duplicates to start your quest against copy/paste coding. You’ll be presented with a list of candidates for refactoring — and with the help of Refactor | Extract Method it’s easy to keep your code DRY.

PHP Code Sniffer

PhpStorm 4.0 allows you to check your code on the fly with PHP Code Sniffer (phpcs), just by opening a PHP file. The check is triggered every time you change something in the file, so it’s extremely easy to fix problems reported by PHP Code Sniffer.

PHP refactoring

The Rename refactoring works for files, functions, constants, classes, properties, methods, parameters, and local and global variables.

Also following refactorings are available:

  • Introduce Variable
  • Introduce Constant
  • Introduce Field
  • Inline variable

Make global project changes easily and safely. Local changes are made instantly in-place.

Smarty templates editing

With the PhpStorm IDE, you can use the Smarty template engine and take advantage of these productivity features when working with .tpl files:

  • configurable syntax highlighting for keywords, strings, variables and braces
  • syntax errors highlighting
  • Smarty functions and attributes completion
  • automatic insertion of paired braces, quotes and closing tags
  • commenting of the selected block with a single hotkey
  • custom Smarty delimiters support

More on Smarty support in PhpStorm.

Efficient project analysis and navigation

Its thorough source code analysis allows PhpStorm to provide sophisticated code completion even for unannotated code, for example:

  • the function return type is deducted from its body and return statements
  • class property types (and declarations) are extracted from the constructor code
Class fields from constructor
Function type


File structure view and class, method and call hierarchy views allow for faster code review and navigation.

More on Hierarchy View in our blog: Hierarchies view support for PHP & Hierarchy View actions

Smart Environment


PhpStorm helps developers to understand and change their code by providing editable UML class diagrams for PHP code. You can quickly examine your application structure, create and edit classes and their relationships. Look for “Diagrams…” in context menus. Many refactorings can be applied directly from the diagram, via the shortcut menu.


Note that a diagram built from a source control change list or history provides a semantic view of changes – added classes, changed hierarchy, and changed properties.

Drupal & Symfony2 Coding Style Support

PhpStorm contains a bundled predefined coding styles for the popular Drupal content management platform and Symfony2 framework. Currently just reformatting your code in PhpStorm removes 99% of errors reported by Drupal coder-review and helps your code meet Drupal coding standards.

Version control systems integration

PhpStorm supports most popular Version Control Systems:

  • Subversion
  • Mercurial
  • Git
  • Perforce
  • CVS
  • TFS

All the tedious tasks (adding, removing, deleting files) are performed automatically. A built-in visual merge tool resolves all conflicts in a quick and intuitive manner. The changes made locally are highlighted as you type in the editor gutter, providing intuitive navigation and a 2-click rollback for individual changes.

IDE changes


For Git VCS IDE shows revisions graph.



The following features are available no matter which VCS you use:

  • Integrated changelists — group your changes into multiple change lists for better organization
  • Shelved changes — set aside some changes to restore them later
  • Repository changes view — see what has been committed by other team members
  • UML view of changessee UML section
  • Incoming changes view — see the code changes not yet integrated into your local copy
  • Outdated changes notification — get warned that a file you are working with has been changed after your last sync

Local history

PhpStorm tracks any changes made to your source files, protecting you from any accidental losses or modifications, even if made by other applications. At any time, you can inspect the history of either a particular file or directory and rollback to any of its previous versions. You can also set version labels.

Phing Support

PhpStorm automatically completes and checks standard tags, properties, target names, path attribute values in build files:

PHPUnit, Debugger & Profiler


Develop PHPUnit tests in PhpStorm and run them instantly from a directory, file or class using the context menu options.

Dedicated Run/Debug configurations allow you to run the appropriate set of tests at a later time.

Tests are executed in a dedicated Test Runner UI, displaying results overview and detailed stats for the whole suite and every particular test.


If a test fails, you can instantly jump from the stacktrace to the line of code where the error occurred.

More on using PhpUnit with PhpStorm.

Visual Debugger

PhpStorm provides numerous options for debugging your PHP code, so you can:

  • Inspect context-relevant local variables and user-defined watches, including arrays and complex objects, and edit values on the fly.
  • Setup remote debugging for your server.
  • Evaluate an expression in runtime.
  • Debug a page in multiple sessions simultaneously.
  • Keep a debugging session alive while moving between pages.

You can use our browser bookmarklets, Zend Toolbar or XDebug toolbar to initiate debugging directly from any page in a modern browser such as Firefox, IE, Google Chrome or Safari.

Note: PhpStorm includes all the features of WebStorm related to javascript and html editing.


DOM-Based, browser-specific completion

JavaScript, HTML & CSS code completion for tags, keywords, labels, variables, parameters and functions is DOM-based and supports popular browsers’ specifics (IE, Firefox, etc.) Completion is available for both standard and user-defined functions in *.js files, HTML event handlers and everywhere else where appropriate.

Javascript completion
Go to symbol
  • Go to declaration — navigates to where the function, variable or label in question is declared with a simple hotkey or Ctrl+Click⌘Click.
  • Go to symbol — navigates to any symbol in project code using search patterns, including asterisk (*) and/or CamelHump abbreviations.
  • Find/Highlight Usages — locates other places in your entire project where a JavaScript symbol, label or file is used, with quick preview and instant navigation to the actual usages.

ECMAScript Harmony Support

For those who prefer to stay one step ahead, WebStorm presents experimental support of a new ongoing ECMAScript version code-named Harmony. To try out the new features, set ECMAScript Harmony to be the JavaScript language version in the IDE settings.

Note: each JavaScript engine implementation adds some nice features that others don’t have. When you use a language feature that isn’t supported by the currently selected JavaScript version, WebStorm will notify you and suggest a Quick-Fix:
