PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous web development languages out there. Any website or web app created in PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t really a surprise that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic serving website with heaps of options. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will show unique web content to each visitor even though the page URL will remain the same. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a specific website must be configured on the web server so that the site can run correctly.
