PHP is a recursive acronym for PHP Hypertext Preprocessor, though it originally stood for Personal Home Page. It is designed specifically for the web, hence a web programming language.
PHP is a server-side scripting language which can be either embedded into HTML documents or used alone. Since PHP is a interpreted language, when someone requests a page containing PHP, the code is interpreted on the server and the output (often HTML) is returned to the client web browser.
As you might have guessed, PHP can help you generate different outputs depending on the conditions and generate different pages depending on conditions programmed, hence able to create what wee call “Dynamic Pages”.
In the next article we’ll see how PHP code works and how it is embedded in HTML documents, till then Good Bye guys!
