To execute PHP code in WordPress, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new file with a .php extension (for example, test.php) on your computer.
  2. Add your PHP code to this file. For example, you can add the following code to display a simple message:
1
2
3
<?php
echo "Hello, this is a PHP message.";
?>


  1. Save the file and upload it to the root directory of your WordPress installation using an FTP client or your web hosting control panel.
  2. Once the file is uploaded, you can access it in your web browser by typing the URL to the file in the address bar (for example, http://www.yourwebsite.com/test.php).
  3. The PHP code should now be executed, and you should see the output displayed in your browser.


Please note that executing PHP code in WordPress should be done carefully to avoid security risks. It is recommended to only execute PHP code from trusted sources and to sanitize input data to prevent vulnerabilities.
