PHP is a powerful server-side scripting language for creating dynamic and interactive websites.
PHP is the widely-used, free, and efficient alternative to competitors such as Microsoft's ASP. PHP is perfectly suited for Web development and can be embedded directly into the HTML code.
The PHP syntax is very similar to Perl and C. PHP is often used together with Apache (web server) on various operating systems. It also supports ISAPI and can be used with Microsoft's IIS on Windows.

PHP Tutorial: Introduction

Welcome to the HTML Goodies PHP Tutorials! This series is a new series that is in development right now. This tutorial series is a little more advanced than our HTML tutorials. The assumption is made that you already have an understanding of HTML and basic web design. For this reason this is not a good starting point for the new designer, but is instead a place for one with a little experience to spread their wings and expand their design horizons. Check back here often to see the progress of the series. We'll have you writing PHP code very soon! The following sections are available now:
