PHP

PHP

PHP is a programming language originally designed for producing dynamic web pages. PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML, but can be used from a command line interface or in standalone graphical applications. 

PHP is a fundamentally Internet-aware system with modules built in for accessing FTP servers, many database servers, embedded SQL libraries such as embedded MySQL and SQLite, LDAP servers, and others.

 PHP 5.2.5
