PHP and MySQL Website Development
PHP (officially "PHP:
Hypertext Preprocessor") is a server-side HTML-embedded
scripting language. It's the computer language that I used to
develop the website add-on programs.

This means that PHP scripts execute on the Web server, not
within the browser on your local machine.
- HTML embedded scripting
language: This means that PHP statements and commands
are actually embedded in your HTML documents. When the Web
server sees the PHP statements in the Web page, the server
executes the statements and sends the resulting output along
with the rest of the HTML.
PHP is excellent for creating
dynamic Web pages for e-commerce and other Web applications. A
dynamic Web page is a page that interacts with the user, so that
each user visiting the page sees customized information. Dynamic Web
applications are prevalent in commercial (e-commerce) sites, where
the content displayed is generated from information accessed in a
database or other external source.
PHP offers a simple and universal
solution for easy-to-program dynamic Web pages. The intuitive
interface allows programmers to embed PHP commands right in the HTML

a database management system, and a database is a structured
collection of data. It may be anything from a list of products on

multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust Structured Query Language
database server. It is is a relational database management system
which stores data in separate tables rather than putting all the
data in one big storeroom which adds speed and flexibility. The
tables are linked by defined relations making it possible to combine
data from several tables on request.
MySQL is the most popular SQL
database. It is very fast, reliable, and easy to use. MySQL was
originally developed to handle large databases much faster than
existing solutions and has been successfully used in highly
demanding production environments for several years. MySQL Servers
are available on most Internet websites. It's connectivity, speed,
and security makes the MySQL server highly suited for accessing
databases on the Internet.
Developing a database on your
website is usually done in combination with requests from webpages
written in PHP.
