Hello all. I decided to use some PHP scripts on my website recently. :p I know all you need to do is write a .php file with PHP code embedded within (<?php ?>) tags, then upload it to your host. What I was wondering is, does the code stay in script form and get parsed out and read by an interpreter on the server each time a client requests a page? Or does the server read the .php files as soon as you upload them and replace the scripts with a bytecode, which is then run by a VM? Thanks for any answers.
