PHP is a popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development
Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
PHP is a programming language that can do all sorts of things:
- Evaluate form data sent from a browser
- Build custom web content to serve the browser
- Talk to a database
- And even send and receive cookies (little packets of data that your browser uses to remember things, like if you’re logged in to gmail).
