Why PHP is needed by Nextcloud?

Why Nextcloud needs PHP?
Can I install Nextcloud without PHP? Then what may happen?

It just won’t run… Its core is written in PHP.


Thank you! Mr Chartman123 .
NextCloud is writen by PHP language. So NextCloud needs PHP transrater from PHP documents to machine binary language of computer circuits. Is this correct?

As it’s not specific to Nextcloud, I’d suggest that you read more about it on the official PHP site:

Thanks! PHP is a scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. Maybe “embedded into HTML” is very important.
Thank you for the proper advice. I study total PHP.
