PHP is an open-source, server-side programming language created specifically for serving up websites.
Most of my PHP websites also use a MySQL database for data storage. MySQL is the world’s most popular database. It’s extremely light-weight, fast, easy to use.
Why I use PHP
- Adoption. According to W3 Techs Web Technology Survey "PHP is used by 81.9% of all the websites whose server-side programming language we know."
- Portability. Both PHP and MySQL databases come standard with just about every hosting service plan these days. So by using these technologies your website or web application is instantly portable to pretty much any other hosting service with little or no custom configuration required.
- Community. PHP has a large open-source community of developers.
- Powerful. PHP is powerful enough to run some of the most popular websites on the Internet including Facebook, Wikipedia, and Yahoo!
