PHP has now become a widely used language for script execution in HTML. Being an open source language, it has been actively used by developers in building up websites. PHP is a server side scripting language, which means that it runs on server side and is used to generate server response for each user differently.
CakePHP is a framework for PHP. It employs MVC architecture to run the codes generated. MVC stands for Model, View and Controller. Model stands for all the data that is used by user and the developer for website functioning and usage. View contains all the UI components of the website that a user is exposed to. All the designing work lies under View. Controller component controls the interaction between Model and View components. It tracks user requests and delivers the data from Model to View component as the the user desires for. All the three components are interlinked to give desired results.
