PHP Script

Hosting Encyclopedia » PHP Script

PHP scripting refers to a language that can be embedded in HTML. A big part of its syntax is borrowed from C, Java and the Perl languages. Of course, it has some unique PHP-exclusive features thrown in. The language was created so it is possible for web developers to code dynamically generated pages easier. The code is parsed by a server with a PHP script processor module. The end result is the generated website. It’s also possible to manipulate it via command-line interface due to it’s an integrated capability, plus it can be used in separate graphical applications. The PHP script can be installed on most modern servers and also as a separate shell on most popular OS’ and platforms for free.

 

PHP Requirements

As mentioned the PHP script was originally designed to create dynamic websites. Nowadays PHP is focused primarily on server-side scripting. In that sense, it is similar to other server-side scripting languages that serve dynamic content from a remote server to a client. Other similar scripts are Microsoft’s ASP.NET, Sun Microsystems’ JavaServer Pages, and mod_perl. PHP script has also attracted the development of many frameworks that provide building blocks and a design structure to promote rapid application development (RAD). Some of these include CakePHP, Symfony, CodeIgniter, Yii Framework, and Zend Framework, offering features similar to other web application frameworks.
