PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used web development languages available out there. Any site or Internet application created using PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language truly universal and it comes as little surprise that there are a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic site with a multitude of different features. A PHP-based community website, for example, will show unique content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a specific website must be configured on the server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.
