This is blog 2 of 3. This blog will learn how to create your own web service. I was unsure about developing a solution in PHP with a simple REST API or a Web Service project in Visual Studio.
My website runs on Apache Server, not Internet Information Server (IIS). Read this blog if you want to know how to program a web service in .NET. For now, we will create a web service in PHP.
The next blog shows how to create a client application that calls the web service.
