PHP stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. This is called a recursive definition and is a computer geek's idea of a joke.

It was developed in 1994 by Rasmus Lerdof as a set of tools to parse and interpret some macros - things like a guest book, a counter and a few other things. This was way back in the early days of the web (but NOT the early days of the Internet, which started in the 1960s). With a bit more work, he started to combine his different tools into a larger package and even added database support (something that PHP is now well-known for providing - blurtit is php powered for example). Rasmus generously released his product for free as Open Source, which means others can join in and add new features to it, as long as they let others use their ideas too. PHP soon became popular, and a bit big for one person to develop.

In 1998, a new version, PHP3, was released by Zend , a business started by Zeev Suraaski and Andi Gutmans. It has now moved on to PHP5 and is freely available to everyone, runs on many different platforms and powers a huge proportion of the world's interactive websites.

Rasmus must be very proud of his fabulous creation now!

FYI: When Rasmus Lerdof created it, PHP stood for "Personal Home Page". It was later changed to "Hypertext Preprocessor" by Suraaski and Gutmans during the rewrite to PHP3 as it's use extended beyond html page manipulation.

asmus Lerdorf is known as the father of PHP.

PHP development began in 1995 when Rasmus Lerdorf wrote several Common Gateway Interface (CGI) programs in C, which he used to maintain his personal homepage. He extended them to work with web forms and to communicate with databases, and called this implementation "Personal Home Page/Forms Interpreter" or PHP/FI.

PHP/FI could help to build simple, dynamic web applications. To accelerate bug reporting and to improve the code, Lerdorf initially announced the release of PHP/FI as "Personal Home Page Tools (PHP Tools) version 1.0" on the Usenet discussion group comp.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi on June 8, 1995.[13][14] This release already had the basic functionality that PHP has as of 2013. This included Perl-like variables, form handling, and the ability to embed HTML. The syntax resembled that of Perl but was simpler, more limited and less consistent.

Lerdorf did not intend the early PHP to become a new programming language, but it grew organically, with Lerdorf noting in retrospect: "I don’t know how to stop it, there was never any intent to write a programming language. I have absolutely no idea how to write a programming language, I just kept adding the next logical step on the way." A development team began to form and, after months of work and beta testing, officially released PHP/FI 2 in November 1997.

PHP Installation

  • Introduction to XAMPP

  • Installing XAMPP

There is no need of special software to execute HTML webpage. You simply write HTML code and save it with .html extension. After this, as soon as you open that file, your code gets executed and it shows in the form of a web page. But this is not so with PHP.

PHP is a scripting language that provides the ability to implement logic in web pages. Like any other programming language, PHP also provides object oriented programming features. Therefore, to execute PHP scripts, you need a PHP interpreter.

Because PHP is a server side scripting language, a server is also required to execute PHP scripts. PHP scripts can not be executed without the server. Apache is the most common server to use for learning development in PHP.

If you are creating a database application (for storing data) then you also need a DBMS such as MySQL.

If you want to configure PHP, MySQL and Apache server, you can configure it separately. But you do not have to do this. XAMPP package has been provided by Apache Friends for easy development in PHP.

What is XAMPP ? XAMPP is a free, open source web server solution package. It has been developed by Apache Friends. There is mainly Apache HTTP Server, MySQL Database and PHP interpreter files available. XAMPP is a cross platform package. It is available for all major platforms.

After installing XAMPP, you do not need to install any other software. This is a complete package for PHP development. When you install XAMPP, your computer automatically installs other services such as PHP, Apache Server and MySQL.
