PHP is a server side scripting language. PHP is short for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. Here preprocessor means that PHP makes changes before the HTML page created. If you are a web designer then I think you already knows about HTML, CSS or JAVASCRIPT & if you want to learn PHP then you should know these web languages. PHP syntax is similar as C language. PHP has similar control structure – IF-ELSE, FOR, WHILE, DO-WHILE as C language have.
