PHP is the code (uncompiled programming) that your website and or web application is written in. To display it most people use HTML as well which gives the front-end (what the user will see). MySQL is just the database which PHP will connect to on the server-side, to store and retrieve data. PHP does not require a database and can even use flatfiles to store data. MySQL is prefered for both speed and amount of data storage.

Hope this helps....
