PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used interpreted programming languages available out there. Any website or web application built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t very surprising that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to set up an interactive website with a multitude of options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will serve unique content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL will be the same. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst developing a given website must be present on the web server in order for the site to work faultlessly.
