php is an opensource (free as long as you use it not to make money from it - in my understanding)scripting language popularly use in most
websites. this scripting language is done on the server side
unlike javascript mostly is on the client side.
mysql is also an open source data management system (dbms).
these two are most of time bundled together in most websites as
a lot of websites made are for information only. this would be a great saving to clients of programmers (in the sense programmers of php & mysql). php can also be used with ms sql (microsoft dbms). but
considering the cost you or your customers will pay alot.
i hope this helps.
