PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used general-purpose server-side scripting languages out there. Any site or web app built using PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not really a surprise that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it enables you to create a dynamic site with many options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will serve unique content to each visitor despite the fact that the page URL won’t change. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while setting up a certain website must be available on the web server in order for the site to work properly.
