What is PHP? Text Tutorial

PHP is a server-side HTML embedded scripting language used to create scripts and/or Web pages. In a HTML document, a PHP script is enclosed with special PHP tags. Because PHP is executed on the server, the client cannot view the PHP code. PHP can perform any task that any CGI program can do, but strength lies in the compatibility with many types of databases. PHP can talk across networks using IMAP, SNMP, NNTP, POP3, or HTTP.
