PHP stands for Hypertext Preprocessor, and refers to a server-side scripting language. PHP is used commonly on web applications to create dynamic content, and access data from within a database.

PHP is the most common of all server side scripting languages, and operates on several different types of servers, including Windows, Linux, and Unix.
