PHP is an open source, cross platform, server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language used for creating dynamic web content. On the Linux platform PHP provides the most reliable and complete equivalent to ASP. A recent Netcraft survey indicates that over 1.5 million sites use PHP. One of the strongest features of PHP is its support for a wide range of databases. PHP is compatible with all popular web servers, and can be integrated into the Apache server, the most popular web server on the Internet (58% of websites according to Netcraft statistics). PHP 4, the latest version, is a complete re-write rather than just an inconsequential upgrade. Now the speed and performance of PHP has been significantly enhanced by up to 75%. PHP will play a major role in the World Wide Web arena and due to the open source nature of the product it is here to stay.
