Web Developer Resource Index: PHP

PHP is a popular server-side scripting language used by many developers to deliver dynamic content in their Web pages. It is generally embedded into the same document markup code as the rest of the page, usually HTML. I use it to extract content from MySQL databases and other sources, and then deliver these pages to my visitors as XHTML.

PHP is similar in concept to CGI scripting, but it has several advantages. Foremost is efficiency: scripting languages like PHP are modular components of the Web server rather than separate programs and processes. This makes communication through the server, and thus the results returned to the user, much faster. In addition, PHP scripts have access to the full Web server API—in this case Apache.

PHP has a large assortment of extensions that allow the programmer to communicate with various database systems, generate graphics, connect to FTP servers, read and write XML code, send email, and so on.

If you’re interested, you can view the PHP source code to this page.

If you find this directory useful, please take a moment to rate and/or review it on Hotscripts. I put a lot of work into drx, so I would very much appreciate it. Thank you!
