What is PHP and how does it work?
Masterminded in 1994 by computer whiz Rasmus Lerdorf, with the aim of driving traffic to his own website through improving its look and feel, PHP (otherwise known as Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely used, open source, server-side scripting language used by developers to build dynamic websites and applications.
Embedded into HTML code, PHP gives developers increased control due to its efficiency and user friendliness. It can be deployed on most web servers, operating systems and platforms and is used with the most popular content management systems including Magento, Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla.
Highly popular with programmers, PHP is easy to understand, well organised and offers the ability to add new features quickly, edit current documents easily and create personal scripts for more complex tasks.
It is therefore also a popular choice for Rackspace customers.
