PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous curly-bracket programming languages out there. Any website or application built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is hardly surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it permits you to set up a dynamic serving website with an enormous number of options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will show unique web content to each user in spite of the fact that the page URL will not change. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst building a given website must be available on the server in order for the site to run faultlessly.
