Hello there,

PHP is a programming language that is free and open source. PHP stands for Hypertext Preprocessor, a programming language that was previously used to create Personal Home Pages. It is now used to build both static and interactive websites as well as web-based apps. PHP is mostly used for server-side scripting programming, so you can capture form data, create dynamic page text, and submit and receive cookies much like any other CGI application.
