Information about the .php (php) file type

This is one of two possibilities that we have on file for the .php file extension, follow this link to view both possibilities.

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .php (php) file type.

.php
Server side PHP scripting file, used to dynamically generate a web page. Thus any web page that ends with .php will have been dynamically generated from a server side PHP scripting file.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .php files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .php. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
