PHP is a server-side scripting language used for web development. It has been around since 1994. The language was the platform for the Open Source (OS) Content Management System (CMS) revolution that spurred the growth of platforms like Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla. It has underpinned 200 million websites globally to date.
PHP 7 is the latest iteration of the PHP software and offers a number of new features on previous versions including scalar type hints and anonymous classes. The new version also offers a 25% to 70% improvement on apps deployment but does not require code changes. The new version has been made immediately accessible to GreenGeeks customers that are using PHP 5.6.
