Dynamic web sites rely on scripts or programs running on the server. PHP is one of the most widely used server-side scripting languages. Understanding the basics of PHP coding is vital if you want to go on and program dynamic web pages or sites. It is also useful to have some knowledge of PHP merely to understand and be able to knowledgebly talk about what server-side programming is and how dynamic web sites, content management systems and data-driven web applications work.
