This makes webpages dynamic; they can change depending on circumstances of the user instead of being a simple static page which can’t change rather the layout, information and so forth. This is different from client side scripting however, since to be a server side script the data must be executed on the web server side, compared to the Client side scripts which are executed by the user’s browser.

This is better than compiled code for web applications as compiled code is written for a certain type of machine architecture, hence if the server hosting a website changed then the architecture could change. This would mean that the application would no longer work as the compiled code is incompatible with the new machines
