Designing a Website

What is PHP?
PHP is an open source, server-side, HTML embedded scripting language used to create dynamic web pages.

PHP pages have the extension .php. PHP can perform any task that any CGI program can do, but its strength lies in its compatibility with many types of databases.

PHP is an open source code, meaning it is available to the public for free.

Common uses of PHP include:
  • eCommerce
  • Content Management
  • Blogs
  • Forums/Bulletin Boards
