What is a PHP (PHP:Hypertext Preprocessor) ticket system?
PHP is a server-side scripting language designed primarily for web design, but also used as a general-purpose programming language. A PHP ticket system is an advanced free ticketing system, written in PHP with a MySQL backend, which includes user management through sessions, a search function and several other functions to simplify ticket system management.
It can be hosted on any platform running PHP. Zendesk maintains an official PHP API client. Their client's software supports creating tickets, retrieving and updating tickets, deleting tickets, and more, in Zendesk Support.
The inside scoop
You have several options in terms of the languages the Zendesk API uses. All modern languages, including PHP, let you make HTTP requests and handle HTTP responses. But why reinvent the wheel? Using an API client is a great way to speed up development. An API client takes care of a lot of the low-level details of making requests and handling responses and lets you focus on writing code specific to your particular project.
