PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used dynamic programming languages available out there. Any website or web-based application built with PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is not a big surprise that there are actually several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to develop a responsive site with a multitude of different features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will show unique content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while creating a specific website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave correctly.
