PHP's dynamic server-side scripting language
Developers develop applications, programs, and websites using PHP's dynamic server-side scripting language (Hypertext Pre-processor). The language is an open-source general-purpose scripting language suitable for web development and can be used along with HTML.
It is feature rich and offers many advanced features for a professional software programmer. Custom functions, use of data types, constructs, control structures, structuring of code with the help of object-oriented programming, use of reusable code, and more maintainable code with the help of programming standards make PHP7 an easy-to-understand and versatile language.
With these advantages in PHP7 and other advanced versions, the use of PHP5 was stagnating and gradually it was phased out from the market.
Way back in the year 2019, if as a developer you have used PHP 5 then you have hit a roadblock. Though PHP5 was used ubiquitously, it had its pitfalls.
