PHP (PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a scripting language that helps people make web pages more interactive by allowing them to do more intelligent, complex things. PHP code is run on the web server.

A website programmed with PHP can have pages that are password protected. A website with no programming cannot do this without other complex things. Standard PHP file extensions are: .php .php3 or .phtml, but a web server can be set up to use any extension.[4][5]

Its structure was influenced by many languages like C, Perl, Java, C++, and even Python. It is considered to be free software by the Free Software Foundation.[6]

Wikipedia, which runs on MediaWiki, uses the PHP scripting language.


PHP was first created by a man called Rasmus Lerdorf in 1995.[7] It is now developed and improved by a large team of people.
