    Re: What is the meaning of Hypertext PreProcessor in PHP

    PHP is an HTML-embedded Web scripting language. This means PHP code can be inserted into the HTML of a Web page. As long as the webserver supports it, PHP can be used to generate HTML pages by accessing a database. PHP code is executed on the server, and offers an alternative to CGI or SSI calls, or the use of languages such as ColdFusion. (PHP Hypertext Preprocessor) A scripting language used to create dynamic Web pages. PHP can also be used to connect to a database; to retrieve, add or update content. When a PHP page is accessed, the PHP code is read or "parsed" by the server the page resides on. This makes PHP an ideal language for creating large-scale websites.
