PHP is a server-side scripting language for creating interactive web pages. The acronym PHP derives from Personal Home Page, but now it is defined as "PHP: Hypertext Processor" (see recursive acronym).

PHP is widely used because it is efficient and free (see free software). It can be embedded directly into a web page's server-side HTML code.

PHP is often used together with Apache on Linux and on other platforms such as Microsoft IIS on Windows.

  • The PHP syntax is very similar to Perl and C. [1]
