What is PHP?

This post is all about PHP. A language I used almost 5 years and also one of my favourite.

PHP is a server side (we discussed in previous post) scripting language. that is used to develop Static websites or Dynamic websites( you can find difference in previous posts ) or Web applications. PHP stands for Hypertext Pre-processor, that in early days it stood for Personal Home Pages.

PHP scripts runs using wamp sever or xamp server in windows machines, for linux machine you can use apache or xamp server and in mac it run on Apache or wamp server. The client computers accessing the PHP scripts require a web browser.

A PHP file contains PHP tags and ends with the extension “.php”.

PHP CODE starts with syntax <?php and end with ?>



echo “Hello World!”;
