PHP

PHP is a popular software programming language. It is used by developers to program interactions on the backend of software systems. Using PHP scripts, developers can create dynamic HTML pages. Whereas JavaScript executes its code on the client side, PHP exists on the server side. PHP is a server-side scripting language primarily used with Linux Web Servers. PHP is quite popular. It is free, open-source, and platform-agnostic. PHP is also considered quite usable — programmers familiar with HTML, C, and C++ will notice similar syntax in PHP.
