How to run php code inside cordova?

I am new to cordova and want to transfer my existing app build with jquery mobile and php to iOS/Android. Am I correct, that there is no php interpreter inside cordova? That would mean, that the existing app is not transfarable to cordova as php is a central component in building those html files inside the project. This would make it kind of useless for me.

Is there a way to run php code inside cordova?

    • PHP is server-side so you can run php from a remote address, but not inside a Cordova project.

PHP runs on the server-side; Cordova packages your app into a client-side application.

If you really really want to use your PHP server-generated HTML, rather than static HTML in your client-side app, you can package in an almost empty HTML file, and dynamically fetch HTML from your PHP server, AJAX or otherwise.

In today's age, with AJAX and HTML5 apps, most people will tell you that the server's role should not be to generate HTML files; it should be to generate data (JSON) through APIs. If you switch to such an architecture, you'll find that there are much more tools you can use easily.
