               Features Advantages Interpreted scripts as alternativeto compiled codeIfyou want to have the code to be translated and executed line by line, then youwill need to use interpreted scripts to that instead of the compiled code.Interpreted scripts are basically step-by-step executors of source codeand an advantage of web server scripting is using interpreted scripts insteadof compiled code which is a translatorthat generates the code through a machine from the source code. This means thatthe code doesn’t need to comply with an application for it to be to run.Run as lower overhead code insideweb server pluginsThisis an important advantage to have and in web server scripting, we need to havea lower overhead code. When you run yourweb server as a lower overhead code and you add the different plugins then youwill get many features that will become available to you if you do this. Aside from the extra features, the code will run as alower overhead as it is able to use some of the plugins that are already on theweb server. Hide web serverinterface inside economical APIs Theserver-side scripts are in total control of the web server and the interfacethat they are using is very easy to understand and perfect for beginners or experts to use.

You will need to getthe step by step executors of source code to use the interpreted scriptson your server, the server will find it hard to keep up with all the demandsand the server will have a hard time coping with the load work of theinterpreter’s scripts. This is why the performance drops.

   Code is interpretednot compiled Usinginterpreted script is a lot slower than using because the interpreted scriptsgo through line by line and they make a step by step process to execute thatcode. Each and every statement need to be interpreted before the actual codecan be executed. When you are using compiled scripts, all translations are donefor you and you don’t have to go through a step by step process, it’s much faster than that.
