    Summary     : PHP scripting language for creating dynamic web sites
    Description :
    PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP attempts to make it
    easy for developers to write dynamically generated web pages. PHP also
    offers built-in database integration for several commercial and
    non-commercial database management systems, so writing a
    database-enabled webpage with PHP is fairly simple. The most common
    use of PHP coding is probably as a replacement for CGI scripts.
    
    The php package contains the module (often referred to as mod_php)
    which adds support for the PHP language to Apache HTTP Server.
