Frequently asked questions
PHP is a general-purpose scripting language that is widely used in web development. While most popular for web programming, you can also use PHP to create standalone applications and backend build scripts and utilities. PHP is actually an abbreviation of PHP: Hypertext Processor. A web server like Apache or Nginx executes PHP code through a module or CGI interface. When the server receives a request directed to a PHP script, the PHP code is interpreted and executed. It will then return a response that may be HTML, JSON, or binary image data. Many PHP frameworks like Laravel and Symphony make the process of building web applications with PHP simpler and quicker. PHP is also free and open-source, which means anyone can download a PHP executable for their operating system and start coding.
