PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used open-source server-side programming languages out there. Any site or web-based app written in PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it is small wonder that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to set up an interactive site with an abundance of options. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve unique web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the page URL will remain the same. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while setting up a given website must be installed on the server so that the site can run correctly.
