.phar File Extension

Developer: Greg Beaver
File type: PHP Archive
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .phar. Files with the file extension .phar can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .phar files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .phar file?

PHP archives or files that are packaged in the PHAR (PHP Archive) format are called PHAR files that fall under the category of executable files. PHAR files are files storing file collections and supporting bzip2 and gzip compression and archive checksums as well as they are also files used to distribute and run PHP applications with the use of only one file. PHAR files can be similar with the .JAR files of Java as well as they can also be run using PHP. For instance, the PEAR (PHP Extension and Application Repository) is a PHP extension package manager and it is distributed as a PHAR archive. PHAR files are deeply associated with PHP. It is a server side scripting language used to develop or create web pages wherein PHP files are known to be compatible with APC (Alternative PHP Cache), a cache used for the optimization of application performance by caching the code’s compiled versions.

how to open a .phar file?

Launch a .phar file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .phar file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .phar files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .phar file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .phar file will open the correct application.

PHP Modules Used By Many Web-based Applications

PHP Modules Used By Many Web-based Applications

PHP modules used by many Web-based applications are implemented for server-side Web development and server-side scripting projects. PHP is a general-purpose, open-source scripting language designed for Web development and for the creation of dynamic Web pages. It is appropriate for server-side development where PHP usually runs on a web server. This server-side scripting language embedded into an HTML source document is designed for the production of dynamic Web pages. Dynamic Web pages or images that can be used for websites are created when a PHP code in a requested file is executed during PHP runtime. A Web server with a PHP processor module interprets the code which generates the corresponding set of Web page functionalities as requested by the user. The PHP processor module includes a command-line interface capability that functions in standalone graphical applications. The implementation of PHP into server-side scripting is similar to that of other server side scripting languages like Sun Microsystem’s JavaServer Pages, mod perl and Microsoft’s ASP.NET technology.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .phar files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .phar. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
