PHP(PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) A scripting language that is widely used to create dynamic Web pages. Combining syntax from the C, Java and Perl languages, PHP code is embedded within HTML pages for server side execution. It is commonly used to extract data out of a database on the Web server and present it on the Web page. Originally known as "Personal Home Page," PHP is supported by all Web servers and widely used with the MySQL database. See MySQL.
