We need a PHP script to process form submissions because when you submit a form on a website, the information you enter and the files you upload, needs to be processed and handled in some way. For example, it might need to be saved to a database, or sent to someone via email.
PHP is a server-side programming language, which means it runs on the web server rather than in your web browser. This makes it a useful tool for processing form submissions, as it can take the information you entered in the form, process it, and then send it where it needs to go.
However, this requires that the hosting service where you host your website has PHP support. Moreover, many web hosting services configure PHP badly and often scripts may not work.
