Chapter 7: Introduction to PHP

If you intend to create web applications or websites with dynamic user interaction and Ajax support, then you'll need to use a scripting language such as PHP, which is the most popular, and is also available on most web servers.
     PHP also has remarkably similar structure to JavaScript so, with just a few tweaks here and there, what you learned in the introduction to JavaScript in Chapter 5 can also be used with PHP. This means that having learned JavaScript you should find this chapter a breeze, and after finishing it you'll have the basics of another programming language under your belt.
