PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used server-side programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web app built with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it isn’t a huge surprise that there are a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to build an interactive website with lots of options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will show unique web content to each visitor even though the URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while developing a given website must be present on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.
