How to generate random text using both letters and numbers

Securing PHP Page Access

To generate random text using both letters and numbers, you can use PHP to create a custom function that combines random characters from both sets. Here’s an example of how you can achieve this:

function generateRandomText($length) {
$characters = ‘abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789’;
$randomText = ”;

$charactersLength = strlen($characters);
for ($i = 0; $i < $length; $i++) {
$randomText .= $characters[rand(0, $charactersLength – 1)];

return $randomText;

// Usage example:
$randomString = generateRandomText(10);
echo $randomString;

In the `generateRandomText()` function, we define a string containing all the possible characters (letters and numbers) that we want to include in the random text. Then, we loop `n` times (where `n` is the desired length of the random text) and pick random characters from the string, concatenating them together to form the final random text.

In the example usage, we generate a random string of length 10 and display it on the screen. You can adjust the length as per your requirements.
