PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used object-oriented programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web app built on PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it’s by no means surprising that there are several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it permits you to set up a dynamic website with plenty of options. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve different web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while building a particular website must be present on the server so that the site can run properly.
