PHP is a server-side html-embedded scripting language. It lets you write simple scripts right in your HTML files much like JavaScript does. Unlike JavaScript, PHP is not browser-dependant since its code is executed in the webserver and not in the webbrowser.

A lot of educational portalware is written in PHP, i.e. with the popular LAMP / WAMP software bundle.
