I know what php is, but what exactly does a “portal” do ??? Thanks
Well without knowing exactly what you are looking for, I would have to say that it’s a place to access PHP type scripts.
A portal by it’s definition is like a gateway or doorway to something. In this case it would be to PHP (or scripts)
It might mean a place where you can get pre-made scripts or it might be a reference to a webserver that offers PHP scripting as an option (for a fee usually)
