AN OVERVIEW OF PHP
As PHP is a scripting language, it is integrated into various databases including MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Sybase, Informix, and Microsoft SQL Server. PHP can be used to perform systems functions, handle forms, access cookies and encrypt data. The main characteristics of PHP include: 1, Simplicity 2. Familiarity 3. Security 4. Flexibility 5. Efficiency. PHP code is executed on server which then generates the HTML to send to the client.
PHP was developed by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994 and was published in June 1995. At that time, it was the abbreviated form of Personal Home Page Tools. After two years, 1997, PHP / F1 2.0 entered the public. A year later, two programmers, Zeev Suraski and Andi Gutmans, wrote the original version and started PHP 3. PHP 4, which came in 2000, integrated a scripting engine called Zend Engine, designed by Suraski and Gutmans. Three other major versions with some minor versions were released in the later years with the latest version 7.0, which was released in 2015.
Two decades after the foundation, PHP has registered a phenomenal growth and is still strong. Today, it still runs on over 80% of all websites in the world. These include majors such as Facebook, Wikipedia and WordPress. PHP is popular among developers who are trying to shape the world in their crazy and colorful coding world. There are more than 20 million websites designed with PHP and the need to understand their impact on developers and the coding world in particular.
