PHP is a server-side scripting language particularly well-suited for web development but also popular in general-purpose programming. Originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994, new versions are now produced by The PHP Group.
PHP is processed by a PHP interpreter that's implemented in Apache HTTP Server, the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable, and command-line interface (CLI).
