      Re: What is PHP?

      In Computer Science:
      PHP (a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor)is a computer scripting language, originally designed for producing dynamic web pages. It is for server-side scripting, but can be used from a command line interface or in standalone graphical applications.
      PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. It generally runs on a web server, taking PHP code as its input and creating web pages as output.

      PHP is a programming language - silly, but the name stands for PHP Hypertext Processor. It is open-source and free to use - works well with MySQL, which is an open-source database software. Basically PHP extends basic HTML by allowing users to create dynamic content, derived from databases and from variables set elsewhere.

      Re: What is PHP?

      PHP, which stands for "Hypertext Preprocessor", is a server-side, HTML embedded scripting language used to create dynamic Web pages. Much of its syntax is borrowed from C, Java and Perl with some unique features thrown in. The goal of the language is to allow Web developers to write dynamically generated pages quickly.

      In an HTML page, PHP code is enclosed within special PHP tags. When a visitor opens the page, the server processes the PHP code and then sends the output (not the PHP code itself) to the visitor's browser. It means that, unlike JavaScript, you don't have to worry that someone can steal your PHP script.

      Re: What is PHP?

      PHP is a C-like scripting language (requires no compile by the developer). While it provides a lot of functionality making it ideal for generating Web pages/using within Web pages, it is a general purpose scripting language just like Perl or anything else. It can be run from the command line. I have scripts that manipulate the file system. I have scripts that fetch other pages from the Web and download them to my local directory. I have scripts that generate XML and then open the XML in an application. Just wanted to make the point that it's not just for HTML.

      Re: What is PHP?

      PHP is the most popular server-side language used to build dynamic websites, and though it is not especially difficult to use, non-programmers often find it intimidating. This workshop from author and trainer David Powers is designed to change that by teaching you PHP through a series of clear, focused, easy-to-follow lessons. After briefly explaining what PHP is and how it integrates with HTML, David will guide you through the setup and configuration of a PHP development environment on both Windows and Mac OS X. Then you’ll learn the features of the PHP language through a series of hands-on exercises before embarking on a larger project that involves building a script to validate and email user input from an online form. Through this project you’ll come to understand the value of creating reusable code, the importance of PHP security, and how to deal with multiple-choice form fields.

      PHP is an HTML embedded scripting language. And Much of its syntax is borrowed from C and Java and Perl with a couple of unique PHP specific features thrown in. The goal of the language is to allow web developers to write dynamically generated pages quickly. And it is important to use the bug database instead of just sending an email to one of the mailing lists because the bug will have a tracking number assigned and it will then be possible for you to go back later and check on the status of the bug.

      As everyone knew PHP is a server -side scripting language mainly designed for web development, but also used as a general purpose programming language. PHP code is usual embedded into the HTML code, and can be used in various templates and frameworks.
