"PHP is a great embedded programming language for the Internet. Using PHP you can do a great deal of things such as:

  • Access databases
  • Run system commands
  • Perform file I/O
  • Create dynamic images
"It's very powerful C-like language and is very easy to understand if you have any programming background. You could compare PHP with the likes of ColdFusion and ASP. Although, I feel that PHP has much more functionality and flexibility. Oh, it's free too."

"This NHF is aimed at newbies with moderate Linux experience. You need to understand how to move around your filesystem, perform basic file operations, and compile/install programs. If you don't, I strongly suggest you read some of the other NHF's aimed at fresh newbies and come back to this."
