A web application (or web app) is application software that runs on a web server, unlike computer-based software programs that are run locally on the operating system (OS) of the device.
Web applications are accessed by the user through a web browser with an active network connection. These applications are programmed using a client server modeled structure the user ("client") is provided services through an offsite server that is hosted by a third party.
Examples of commonly-used web applications include: web-mail, online retail sales, online banking, and online auctions.
PHP is a general-purpose scripting language especially suited to web development. PHP code is usually processed on a web server by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module, a daemon or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable.
