What is a .PHP file?

PHP files are source code files that contain PHP, a web development scripting language used to add extended functionality to webpages. PHP code is parsed by a PHP engine on a web server, which dynamically generates HTML that is sent to the user's web browser. Some examples of functions provided by PHP code include accessing information from a database and processing online forms.

PHP files are typically only used by web developers who are creating or editing PHP files when developing webpages with extended functionality. However, PHP files may be downloaded from a webpage using a web browser, such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer.

If you have a PHP file that contains PHP code, you can open it with File Viewer Plus. Our software allows you to view the PHP source code with various code viewing tools. You can also modify the code and save it as a PHP, RTF, or TXT file with File Viewer Plus.
