What is PHP? or even PTP?

I came across an article this morning that claimed to offer easy PHP classes, easy to follow video etc. and went on to explain how easy it was to learn “even a novice developer could it in a day”.  Well, for those of us who have been around computers for a while (20+ years) and have learned HTML and/or designed their own websites but don’t know all the “techno-babble” acronyms, a brief/short or even detailed, description of what PHP is, i.e. P…… H….P….. would be useful to know, so that we can decide whether or not the recommended texts/courses/videos are indeed what we need.  My comments on the article are:  “Interesting article, however, it would help to describe what PHP means/stands for, other than saying “PHP is an open source scripting language that helps in effective web development.” Unless you are already a programmer or so advanced in computer literacy that you know all the acronyms, and there are new ones popping up all the time, you just don’t know, so – What is PHP? Without knowing what PHP is, how does the average person wanting to improve their computer skills know whether they should learn PHP or HTML? or both? Thanks for the article though, still interesting but you need to have advanced computer knowledge to understand it. I have been using computers for 20+ years and designed my own website but I have not come across PHP until recently and no-one has given me a precise description of what it actually does.”
