The static vs dynamic website debate
PHP – Hypertext Preprocessor. PHP is a widely-used, open source scripting language. It is a tool for making dynamic and interactive Web pages quickly.
I found PHP useful for a number of reasons: PHP code can be embedded in HTML. The PHP code will be run each time the web page is requested.
1 PHP can generate dynamic page content;
2 PHP can create, open, read, write, and close files on the server;
3 PHP can collect form data;
4 PHP can send and receive cookies;
5 PHP can add, delete, modify data in your database;
6 PHP is free
7 PHP runs on various platforms (Windows, Linux, Unix, Mac OS);
8 PHP is compatible with almost all servers used today (Apache, IIS);
9 PHP supports a wide range of databases.
