Before we go to download part lets talk about php file itself. What is a .php file means? Php files are server side scripting file. They contain the code which will run on the server itself. Whenever server receives a download call for PHP file, it runs the programming code of that file and show the output. They do this because PHP files contain very confidential data which can ruin the Website if some hacker know the inside code. Like the config.php file is created by a Web Developer to access the database, it contains the database’s username and password, if someone download that php file then he ca access the database and get any information he needs from it
