PHP is a high level, dynamic, interpreted scripting language. Originally it was created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1995 and stood for Personal Home Page. It began in 1994 as a set of Common Gateway Interface binaries written in the C programming language. The Danish/Greenlandic programmer Rasmus Lerdorf created these Personal Home Page Tools to replace a small set of Perl scripts used to maintain his personal homepage. It augments raw HTML by allowing significant interactivity and increased functionality. It has become popular in recent years as it is easy to begin working with and supported by a good majority of web hosting companies. MediaWiki, the server software for Wikiversity, makes extensive use of PHP.
