PHP:- Hypertext Preprocessor (or simply PHP) is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. It was originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994, the PHP reference implementation is now produced by The PHP Group. PHP originally stood for Personal Home Page, but it now stands for the recursive acronym PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor.PHP code may be embedded into HTML code, or it can be used in combination with various web template systems, web content management systems, and web frameworks. PHP code is usually processed by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module in the web server or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable. The web server combines the results of the interpreted and executed PHP code, which may be any type of data, including images, with the generated web page. PHP code may also be executed with a command-line interface (CLI) and can be used to implement standalone graphical applications.

Yii started as an attempt to fix drawbacks of the PRADO framework: Slow handling of complex pages, steep learning curve and difficulty to customize many controls. In October 2006, after ten months of private development, the first alpha version of Yii was released, followed by the formal 1.00 release in December 2008.Yii 1.1 was released in January 2010 adding a form builder, relational Active record queries, a unit testing framework and more. In May 2011 the developers decided to use new PHP versions and fix architectural mistakes. This led to version 2.0 to which the first commit was made in the same month. In May 2013 the Yii 2.0 code went public, followed by the first stable release of Yii 2.0 in October 2014. The current version 2.0.9 also supports PHP7.
