    Introduction to PHP - History In 1995, an independent software development contractor named Rasmus Lerdorf developed a Perl/CGI script to: 1) logging visitor information, and 2) displaying the count of visitors to the Web page. They prompted e-mails inquiring about Lerdorf's scripts. Lerdorf thus began giving away his toolset, dubbed Personal Home Page (PHP). In November 1997, PHP 2.0 was released with form interface. By the June 1998 release of version 3.0, more than 50,000 users were using PHP to enhance their Web pages. At the beginning of 1999, Netcraft (http://www.netcraft.com/) reported a conservative estimate of a user base surpassing 1,000,000, making PHP one of the most popular scripting languages in the world.
