PHP Programming Tutorial & PHP Scripts

PHP stands for Hyper Text Preprocessor. Actually, PHP is a server side scripting language and not a programming language as erroneously mentioned in the headline of this page. Programming languages are for example C, Pearl, or Java, which can be utilized to create standalone applications. With PHP, you must have PHP installed and enabled on your server (or home PC) in order to use PHP.

PHP is often being used together with MySQL to access or connect databases to a website. While PHP runs on most operating systems, including Windows, and can be installed on your home PC (for testing purposes), it is a server side, HTML embedded scripting language that can be used to create dynamic webpages. PHP can function as a separate program or compiled as a module for use with the Apache Web Server.

PHP provides a couple of different MySQL API extensions. Go to Download PHP for more info.
