PHP refers to Hypertext Preprocessor, a general-purpose scripting language mainly used for creating dynamic web pages and web applications. It is very flexible but extremely powerful language that embed with the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). Several complex software and applications can be made easily using this popular scripting language.
PHP generally runs on web server. It is competent to run on most of the servers and platforms like MS Windows, Linux, Mac Os, Sun Solaris and others. But for processing the PHP code, there is a need to configure the web server. It can be easily used with many relational database management systems.
PHP was originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1995 and still going on under modification. It is freely available software under PHP Licence and PHP group provides the complete source code for users to build, customize and extend for their personal use.
PHP has evolved to include a command line interface capability and can also be used in standalone graphical applications. Besides creating dynamic web pages, PHP can also be used for command-line scripting and client-side GUI applications.
Basically PHP functions like a filter in which it takes input from a file or stream containing text and/or PHP instructions and gives output of another stream of data. Generally the output comes in HTML. After the origination of Zend Engine – the catalyst of PHP code processor – has improved the performance of PHP.
