PHP is one of the most commonly used open-source server-side coding languages. It is extremely popular because it’s free software, which can be used to build responsive sites like social networks, e-shops or e-learning portals rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language itself provides incalculable possibilities for the apps that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP sites. Plus, there’re lots of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding experience. Given the fact that there are a couple of PHP versions, you ought to verify whether the same version that you used while creating your website is enabled on the server as well.
