Hands on exercise

This exercise is primarily focused on getting a simple php CGI coded and running correctly.

In your AdvancedWebFiles/cgis directory you will find a file "phpStarter.txt" which you may find useful. Our goal here is to create a php CGI that will respond to the user request by thanking them by name for their suggestion and showing their suggestion in order to make it clear you got it.
