What is PHP/MySQL? 

PHP/MySQL is the use of PHP Programming Language and MySQL Database Framework to develop dynamic web applications. 

What is PHP? 

PHP has its full meaning to be Hypertext Preprocessor. It is a general-purpose server-side scripting programming language that started as a small open source project and the first version was unleashed by a man called Rasmus Lerdorf in the year 1994. 

PHP is fast, flexible, pragmatic and it powers almost everything from a small blog to the most popular websites. It is the most popular server-side scripting language on the web. Without PHP, platforms like Facebook, Yahoo, Google etc. wouldn't be existing today, because most of these platforms started with PHP and a lot of them still use PHP till date.

PHP code can either be executed with a command-line interface (CLI), together with HTML code or used in a combination with various web template systems, web content management systems, and web frameworks. PHP code is often processed by a PHP interpreter executed as a module in a web server or as a Common gateway interface (CGI) executable.

What is MySQL? 

MYSQL has its full meaning to be My Structured Query Language - a database framework language. It is an Oracle-backed Open-source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) based on Structured Query Language (SQL), which is used for adding, removing, and modifying information in the database. It allows you to manage relational databases, you can also tweak its source code to suit your large scale needs. It is written in C and C++. It's SQL parser is written most with Yacc, but it uses a homemade lexical analyzer. MySQL is supported by so many platforms. 

The most common use for MySQL is for the purpose of a Web-based database. It can be used to store any type of data from a single record of information to an entire repository or inventory of available products and services for an online shopping store.

A lot of developers prefer to use PHP/MYSQL language for website server-side processing because it is easier to understand and implement.

Another thing that makes PHP/MySQL popular is that it is open source and can be installed by anyone for practice and for development.

Benefits of PHP: 

Some of the benefits of PHP include: 

1. It is cross-platform and dynamic.

2. It is easy to connect to the database.

3. It is easy to write and deploy.

4. It is Open Source. Open Source means you don't have to rely on the manufacturer to fix issues.

5. It is easy to understand.

6. PHP is a programming language that allows web developers to create dynamic pages that change content anytime to interact with the database. 

7. PHP is a server-side scripting language that can also be embedded in an HTML script. PHP supports a large number of protocols such as Filesystem, Socket, POP3, IMAP e.t.c. 

8. PHP is extensible.

9. PHP is compatible with servers like IIS and APACHE.

10. It has low development and maintenance costs.

11. PHP has very high performance and reliability. 

12. PHP provides memory usage information which can help developers optimize their code

13. Easy access to its tools.

14. Active community support.

15. PHP can easily be turned into a code produced by WYSIWYG editors.

Benefits of MySQL: 

Some of the benefits of MySQL include: 

1. The MySQL Software Operation is Flexible.

2. Free and Easy Access Open Source.

3. Complete Workflow Control.

4. On-Demand Scalability.

5. Data Security.

6. Reduced Total Cost of Ownership.

7. Available under a variety of proprietary licenses.

8. Highly Performant and Scalable.

9. It gives you the ability to develop and deploy on multiple operating systems.

10. It is easy to use and understand.

Applications of PHP/MySQL:

Some of the benefits of PHP/MySQL include: 

1. They can both be used to perform system functions i.e It can create, read, open, write and save files from a system.

2. They can both be used to encrypt data.

3. Using PHP, you can restrict users access to some pages of a website using permissions.

4. You can modify, delete, add elements within a MySQL database through PHP.

5. PHP/MySQL can handle forms i.e collect data from files, save data to a file you can send data and return data to the user through email.

6. You can access cookies, variables and also set cookies with PHP.

7. With PHP/MySQL you can build content management systems, eCommerce applications, GUI-Based Applications, and Data Representation.

Tools to develop and run PHP/MYSQL pages: 

These are some of the vital tools you need to develop and run PHP/MySQL: 

1. Webserver: PHP pages need a webserver platform to be able to run and work. The most popular and common web server used by many web developers is the Apache Server. Examples of Apache servers are XAMPP, WAMP e.t.c.

2. Database: PHP needs a database to run more efficiently, such as MySQL. Examples of the database used by many developers are: Synbase, Oracle and the most commonly used and freely available is MYSQL Database.

3. PHP Parser: In order for us to process a PHP scripting instruction, a parser must be installed in order to generate an HTML output. With three mentions above you are good to run your PHP pages. PHP script generally start with <?php” and ends with “?>.

All PHP variables are denoted with a dollar sign ($) and also variables are assigned with the = operator, with the variable on the left-hand side and the expression to be evaluated on the right. PHP has a total of data type in we use to construct our variables. 

Example of PHP Code Syntax

PHP has it's code syntax to be C-like.

This is a PHP function that returns the sum of two integers within a closure.

<?php
function getAdder(int $x): Closure { return function(int $y) use ($x): int { return $x + $y; }; } $adder = getAdder(8); echo $adder(2); // prints "10"

 Example of MySQL Query Syntax

SELECT * FROM (
  SELECT
    RANK() OVER (ORDER BY age ASC) AS ranking,
    person_id,
    person_name,
    age
  FROM person
) AS foo
WHERE ranking <= 10
