PHP for Mac is a popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development. Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP for macOS powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.

PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML.

Instead of lots of commands to output HTML (as seen in C or Perl), pages contain HTML with embedded code that does "something" (in this case, output "Hi, I'm a PHP script!"). The code is enclosed in special start and end processing instructions that allow you to jump into and out of "PHP mode."

What distinguishes PHP for macOS from something like client-side JavaScript is that the code is executed on the server, generating HTML which is then sent to the client. The client would receive the results of running that script, but would not know what the underlying code was. You can even configure your web server to process all your HTML files with PHP, and then there's really no way that users can tell what you have up your sleeve.

The best things in using PHP are that it is extremely simple for a newcomer, but offers many advanced features for a professional programmer. Don't be afraid reading the long list of PHP's features. You can jump in, in a short time, and start writing simple scripts in a few hours.
