PHP is one of the most popular scripting languages, working on the server-side. Its acronym means “Hypertext Preprocessor” in Spanish and it is embedded in HTML. It allows: creating personalized web content, sending and receiving cookies, evaluating form data sent from a browser, etc.
In addition to its functions, it has integration with several popular databases such as Postgre SQL, Oracle, Sybase, SQL, and MySQL. It also handles forms, saves data to files, and collects data from files.
Despite the similarities that both languages can have, there are a number of differences that separate one from the other, those are:
PHP is object-oriented, has easy-to-use existing code, variables are case sensitive, requires HTTP to run, has a server-side scripting language, accepts case-sensitive boolean variables, updates files in the server, and is suitable for various frameworks.
These are the main differences between these two programming languages, and it is up to the developer to choose which one seems more appropriate for the project they will face.
