Just had to fix my siggy, and I thought, "So like, is the only difference between PHP and HTML the use of brackets v. the use of the 'greater than' and 'less than' signs?"

I'm not a hardcore programmer (clearly), I just memorize the functions I repeat the most. If said functions fall out of use for a while (like high school algebra), I tend to forget all of it. I'm sure it's the same for most people.

PHP is a server side programming language used to develop specific scripts that help a site work with a database that stores information. PHP code interacts with the user from the browser engine and sends commands based on user events to access or store data inside of the database.

Almost every site that uses user accounts has a database and uses PHP or another programing language (e.g. CHU uses ASP) to make the accounts work.

So, what? PHP is a subset/branch of HTML? Like VB is of C++?

Visual Basic isn't related to C++ at all (at best, they share the same IDE suite which is Visual Studio, but the two languages are not related).

PHP is a scripting language that interacts and is embedded inside HTML code, but is not a derivative of HTML. It's it's own separate language with it's own set of rules of how to use it.

I told you I didn't know anything about it. ;p

I tried learning VB 5.0 back whenever Worms Armageddon was new with one of those Learn XXX in 24 Hours books, but I guess my Asperger's addled brain is structured in a way that whatever "simple" instructions that book contained wasn't really absorptive. I remember specifically that it was when WA was new because I installed it on a laptop my dad lent me when he started bringing me to work to separate me from my siblings with whom I fought constantly. So, '98? It had to be '98 because I remember installing a WA "Plus" theme for Win98 Plus. Anyway, the point is, I'm perfectly capable of building a custom PC and installing an OS on my own, but when it comes to actual programming (I really wish I knew whatever the AmigaOS was written in, because I'd totally write everything for it.), I'm as inept as I was in the math section of the SATs. Though I thoroughly aced the Verbal (now known as "Critical Reading", damned liberals) section.
