PHP is a programming language for creating web pages and websites. It is not only easy to learn, but also comes with extensive documentation and tutorials, making it a great language for beginners.


The first iteration of PHP was released in 1995 by Rasmus Lerdorf, and the following year he created an important extension that allowed developers to embed graphics as part of the HTML—an idea that had been around since 1989. A couple years later, things were looking up as MySQL (one of the most widely used database management systems) became integrated into PHP's codebase in 1997.


When you begin using PHP to develop your website or web application, you will likely need to use an IDE (integrated development environment). Although you can write your scripts with an editor, it is recommended to use one of these IDEs to make things easier for you.

The most important thing when learning PHP is to know when ""to use it"". You will see many queries for ""how to usesuch & such"" in the forums/forums/websites.

So in short, it is a must for beginners, an easy to learn and powerful language
