"PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor"

PHP, which is the acronym for Hypertext Preprocessor, is a server-side scripting language that is used in building web applications. It is one of the most popular open-source programming languages. This means that it is open, accessible, and freely distributed with licenses not restricting its integration with other software. 

History of PHP

PHP was developed by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994 as a tool for managing his online profile. He wrote it in the C programming language. Based on its originally intended purpose, he named it Personal Home Page (PHP). Lerdorf later combined it with his Form Interpreter to come up with PHP/FI in 1985. After slight remodelling by other developers, Zeev Suraski and Andi Gutmans, an updated PHP/FI 2 emerged. In 1998, it was further developed to PHP 3 which saw a massive adoption of the language.

PHP 4 was released in May 2000 and had a reworked core called the Zend Engine 1.0. The update brought about a significant boost in PHP’s speed and reliability. Aspects such as object-orientation, the Boolean type, and COM support also evolved. The consequent instalments of the software, version 4 and 5, were released in 2004 and 2006 respectively. Currently, it has reached version 7, which was released in November 2017.

Who Uses PHP?

Today, PHP has become ubiquitous with several reputable websites running on PHP code. Despite being wrongfully termed as a poor language by some elite programmers, sites like Facebook, Wikipedia, Flickr, Yahoo, Tumblr, WordPress, and Istockphoto have used it successfully. It has become more powerful and holds approximately 79.1% market share as a server-side language.
