    Hi,
    PHP is a general-purpose server-side scripting language originally designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages. For this purpose, PHP code is embedded into the HTML source document and interpreted by a web server with a PHP processor module, which generates the web page document.

    In layman's terms PHP allows your website to do things, without PHP or another programming language you website will have no functionality and will just look pretty. Some examples of when php is used:

    - To process forms (contact/login/register ect)
    - To offer customized messages to users eg Hello {Name_Here}
    - To retrieve and populate the website with data (stored in databases/files)

    Every website which offers some for of interactivity will use PHP or another similar programming language

    All of the above!

    It's been about PHP vs. Java for a long time now. Age old argument.

    However, the growth of PHP and Symfony frameworks have matured to the point of exceeding the java environment in many ways and today much of the development community is migrating away from Java for this reason.
