Meaning Of PHP And Things That PHP Can Do.

by Krishna K. Promotional Activities

PHP stands for Personal Home Page, however, it is currently used to refer to the recursive initialism. PHP stands for "Hypertext Preprocessor." A PHP interpreter, which can be implemented as a module, a daemon, or a CGI executable, is commonly used to process PHP code on a web server.

The best part about PHP is that it is relatively basic for a newbie while yet providing a wealth of advanced features for a skilled coder. Don't be intimidated by the extensive list of PHP's capabilities. You can hop right in and begin writing simple scripts in a matter of hours or you can even learn PHP online.

What can it do?                                                                 

PHP can perform any task. PHP is mostly used for server-side scripting, so you may collect from input, generate dynamic page content, and send and receive cookies just like any other CGI programme. However, PHP is capable of much more.

PHP scripts are employed in three different areas.

·         Server-side scripting: This is PHP's most well-known and primary target field. You'll need a PHP parser (CGI or server module), a web application, and a web browser to make this work. You'll need to set up a web server and connect it to a PHP installation. Anyone can browse the PHP page through the server and read the PHP programme output with a web browser. If you're just getting started with PHP development, you can run all of these on your desktop workstation.

·         Command-line Scripting: You can create a PHP script to run it without the need for a server or a browser. This method requires simply the PHP parser. This is a great way to use cron (on *nix or Linux) or Task Scheduler for programmes that are run regularly (on Windows). Simple text processing tasks can also be done with these programmes.

·         Creating desktop software: PHP is not the greatest language for writing desktop apps with graphical user interfaces, but if you know PHP well and want to leverage some sophisticated PHP features in your client-side applications, PHP-GTK can help you out. You can also use this method to create cross-platform applications. PHP-GTK is a PHP extension that isn't included in the standard distribution.

PHP is compatible with Linux, several Unix variations (including HP-UX, Solaris, and OpenBSD), Microsoft Windows, macOS, RISC OS, and most other operating systems. PHP is also compatible with a wide range of web servers available today. This contains Apache, IIS, and a slew of additional applications. This includes Lighttpd and Nginx, as well as any web server that can use the FastCGI PHP binaries. PHP can be used as a module or a CGI processor.

As a result, PHP gives you ultimate control over your operating system and a web server. You can also choose between procedural programming and object-oriented programming (OOP), or a combination of the two.

You are not confined to producing HTML with PHP. PHP is capable of generating on-the-fly pictures, PDF files, and even Flash movies (with libswf and Ming). You can also quickly print any text, including XHTML and other XML files. Instead of publishing these files, PHP may autogenerate them and thus save them to the file system, establishing a server-side cache for your dynamic content.

LDAP, IMAP, SNMP, NNTP, POP3, HTTP, COM (on Windows), and a myriad of other protocols are all supported by PHP. You can also use any other protocol to interact with raw network sockets. WDDX complex data exchange between virtually all Web programming languages is supported by PHP. When it comes to interconnection, PHP allows you to instantiate Java objects and use them as PHP objects straightforwardly.
