PHP is a general-purpose programming language used mostly for web development. Created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994, it allows developers to create dynamic web pages with ease.

Image description

For instance, developers can create a form in HTML and process it using PHP. Depending on the inputs entered into the form, developers can use PHP to display different outputs to users. Most of the time, PHP is used as a server-side language.

This means that PHP code is not processed on the user’s computer (also known as a client). In other words, when you access a PHP page on your browser, the code is not processed on your computer.

Instead, your browser sends a request to a web server, which then processes the code and returns the result to the browser in the form of a web page. More often than not, this web server is a remote computer where the PHP files are stored.

For the webserver to process PHP code, a special software known as the PHP interpreter needs to be installed.
