Personal Home Pagee was atlest the original name, I don't know if it still is.  It is a scripting language that works with SQL.

PHP stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor
PHP is a server-side scripting language, like ASP
PHP scripts are executed on the server
PHP supports many databases (MySQL, Informix, Oracle, Sybase, Solid, PostgreSQL, Generic ODBC, etc.)
PHP is an open source software
PHP is free to download and use
PHP files can contain text, HTML tags and scripts
PHP files are returned to the browser as plain HTML
PHP files have a file extension of ".php", ".php3", or ".phtml"



All of the above was a Copy & Paste from W3Schools.com

The only PHP codes to apply to your own hosted forum would be the Shop that I wrote, I believe there isn't any others.

... What?

PHP stands for Hypertext Pre-Processor, which is a processing language that can manipulate how a server reads files.
