PHP is a popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development. Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. Originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994. PHP code may be embedded into HTML code, or it can be used in combination with various web template systems, web content management systems and web frameworks.
PHP code is usually processed by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module in the web server or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable. The web server combines the results of the interpreted and executed PHP code, which may be any type of data, including images, with the generated web page.
QuikSite uses the FastCGI Interpreter for improved speed performance and memory management.
PHP 7 is 2x faster than previous versions of PHP because fewer CPU instructions are required to execute the interpreter. Zend Server includes over 80 PHP extensions and supports Apache and NGINX. Zend Server supports any and all PHP code and provides deep insights into that code including the most popular PHP applications and frameworks like WordPress, Magento, and Drupal.
