For a long time, PHP held the title of World's most used programming language. Only recently it lost it to the likes of C++ and Java, but PHP is still a language to take into account when needing to develop your future project.

Once the first choice of large scale projects like Google or Facebook, PHP has lost some of its appeal thanks to the rise and maturation of Ruby and Python, but it can still provide a high degree of performance and speed, much better than most other programming languages around.

PHP is very attractive to this day, mainly to its huge collection of libraries, tools and development SDKs, that make working with this language not only a pleasure, but actually really efficient and fast.

PHP needs a server to run from, and almost all Web hosting providers provide a PHP interpreter out of the box with their basic packages these days.

From here you can download the PHP core source code. For OS-specific binaries, please use the Softpedia Mac, Linux, and Windows pages.
