PHP is a scripting language used to generate dynamic content on your website. When combined with SQL queries, it allows your website to interact with a database to retrieve, display, modify, and store information. It can also be used to make arithmetic calculations, sort data, upload or download files, send emails, and perform many other useful tasks.
I use PHP to write the software that makes a website function according to a client's specific requirements. One such example is the digital photo competition system that I built using PHP. Among other things, this system allows users to upload image files that are checked for certain criteria. If kosher, the image is saved and the image meta data (camera type, aperture, shutter speed, etc.) is stored in the database.
The PHP programming language is used to accomplish all of the behind-the-scenes tasks a website needs to perform.
Below is a sampling of the website features I've coded using PHP:
Custom data entry forms for inserting, updating, or deleting MySQL database information
CMS tools for filtering, sorting & displaying database info
File uploader for image and text files
Digital image files exported from the server to a .zip file
Database information exported to .xls file
Alphabetized member directory sorted by clickable letters
Newsletter email generation with cc, bcc, attachments, and embedded images
Custom defined user roles with configurable page permissions
