What is PHP?




A: It's like ASP but for Linux. i.e., PHP is a server-side scripting language (runs on the server instead of the user's computer) that is used primarily on Linux Web servers to create dynamic Web pages. PHP script is written into HTML web pages and when the server reads the page it runs the script which is often used to generate content and then sends it on to the end user. Web pages that include PHP script are usually given a file suffix of ".php" ".php3," or ".phtml". You can learn more about it at http://www.php.net.
