What is PHP?

 

PHP is a server-side scripting language that is designed for web development and also used as general-purpose programming language. Originally named as Personal Home Page and now called as Hypertext Preprocessor.

PHP code can be embedded into HTML code, or can be used in combination with other web template systems, web content management systems, and web frameworks. It is usually processed by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module in the web server or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable.

 

UKHost4u servers supports and runs different versions of PHP that can be very important when using multiple applications with different requirements.
