 Create your own folder, name it as you own (balajiPhPforce).

Below screenshot shows PHP files created under folder “balajiPHPforce”

1)Coming to Salesforce.com example .First we have to copy "soapClient" folder from PHP Toolkit to our folder "balajiPhPforce" which is in "htdocs" folder.

Create a "PHP" with name "ContactrecordCreation.php" page by using snippets as shown below.
Creating a contact record into salesforce.com.


require_once ('soapclient/SforcePartnerClient.php');
require_once ('soapclient/SforceEnterpriseClient.php');
define("USERNAME", "username");
define("PASSWORD", "password");
$mySforceConnection = new SforcePartnerClient();
 if (isset($_SESSION['partnerSessionId'])) {
                    $location = $_SESSION['partnerLocation'];
                    $sessionId = $_SESSION['partnerSessionId'];


                    echo "Used session ID for partner<br/><br/>\n";
                } else {
                    $mySforceConnection->login(USERNAME, PASSWORD);

                    $_SESSION['partnerLocation'] = $mySforceConnection->getLocation();
                    $_SESSION['partnerSessionId'] = $mySforceConnection->getSessionId();

                    echo "Logged in with partner<br/><br/>\n";
 $records = array();
$records[0] = new SObject();
                $records[0]->fields = array(
'FirstName' => 'balaji',
                    'LastName' => 'malemarpuram',
                    'email' => 'mbalaji105@gmail.com',
                    'BirthDate' => '1988-05-25'
$records[0]->type = 'Contact';
$response = $mySforceConnection->create($records);
$ids = array();
                foreach ($response as $i => $result) {
                    echo ($result->success == 1) 
                            ? $records[$i]->fields["FirstName"]." "
                                .$records[$i]->fields["LastName"]." "
                                ." created with id ".$result->id."<br/>\n"
                            : "Error: ".$result->errors->message."<br/>\n";
                    array_push($ids, $result->id);

Run this file as explained above.
