About PHP

August 5, 2009

PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML.
You cannot view the PHP source code by selecting “View source” in the browser – you will only
see the output from the PHP file, which is plain HTML. This is because the scripts are executed on the server before the result is sent back to the browser.
If your server supports PHP – you don’t need to do anything! You do not need to compile anything or install any extra tools  – just create some .php files in your web directory – and the server will parse them for you. Most web hosts offer PHP support.
