PHP!
 
Stand for: Hypertext Pre-processor (earlier called,
Personal Home Page
)
Well known in category of a Server Sided language,
Mostly used in web design/web scripting industry
You may have heard of some other scripting languages like ASP, Python and Perl… and
some more.PHP is also one of them .PHP is probably the most popular scripting
language on the web to enhance web pages.
With
PHP, we can do things like
·        Create login pages
·        Check details from a form
·        Create forums, picture  galleries, surveys…
And much more.
 If you are a good observer you must have seen
extensions as “.php” in the URL bar of your browser on several web pages. If you
haven’t seen yet! Doesn’t matter I can list some name for you
·        Wikipedia
·     WordPress
·    Flickr
·    Facebook (though they have their own fork of PHP called HHVM)
·    Yahoo
Here authors have written some programming code to liven up the plain, old HTML (HyperText Markup Language), a standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications.
 PHP is known as a server-sided language. That’s the reason, PHP doesn’t get executed
on your computer, but on the computer you requested the page from. The results
are then handed over to be displayed in the browser.
