PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web based software applications and can be embedded into HTML.PHP generally runs on a web server, taking PHP code as its input and creating Web pages as output. It is a robust, server-side language that can offer a great deal of functionality and allows web developers to create dynamic content that interacts with databases.
When running server-side, the PHP model can be seen as an alternative to Microsoft's ASP.NET / C# / VB.NET system, Macromedia's ColdFusion, Sun Microsystems' JSP, Zope, mod_perl and the Ruby on Rails framework.
The LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) architecture has become popular in the Web industry as a way of deploying inexpensive, reliable, scalable, secure web applications.PHP is increasingly used in conjunction with MySQL – a very popular, widely available, command-driven relational database query language – to create useful and powerful web applications, such as search engines and random fact generators.
PHP can be used with a large number of relational database management systems, runs on all of the most popular web servers and is available for many different operating systems. This flexibility means that PHP has a wide installation base across the Internet; PHP is one of the most popular programming languages for implementing websites with over 20 million Internet domains using PHP.
