PHP is used to add a functionality to your site that HTML alone can't achieve.
PHP can preform all types of calculations. From figuring out what day it is, or what day of the week March 18, 2046 is, to preforming all different types of mathematical equations.
PHP can collect user information
PHP can interact with MySQL databases

PHP is a dynamic language meant to do server-side processing where plain HTML/client-side JavaScript isn't enough. PHP helps you create interactive and dynamic web pages.

PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language.

As of January 2013, PHP was installed on more than 240 million websites (39% of those sampled) and 2.1 million web servers.

Originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994, the reference implementation of PHP (powered by the Zend Engine) is now produced by The PHP Group.

While PHP originally stood for Personal Home Page, it now stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, which is a recursive backronym.

Please remember to add a source-link when you take the content from another website. In your case i think Wikipedia is the source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PHP
