Changing from html to php as the backbone of your site is not something easily or quickly done. You are essentially rewriting your entire code base. You would need to contact a developer to make this change for you, and this is not something we can really advise you on. The costs involved vary wildly, depending on the size of your site and the developer you use.

Answer #2

There is no popularity competition between .html and .php web pages. They are both pure text files. The html is the backbone of all web pages no matter what suffix they use.

A different web page suffix merely instructs the web server to pass a web page through a specific server interpreter before serving it to the browser (.php through the PHP interpreter)

Go ahead and change the .html suffix of your pages into .php and they will continue working just fine (just remember to also change any link references). However, in this way you are forcing your web server to needlessly pass your web pages through the PHP interpreter (which, due to lack of any embedded php code, will do nothing), thus adding a (minuscule nevertheless) speed overhead to the server response.

Use of the .php suffix adds value to your pages only if you start embedding php codes in your html, so as to have dynamic content web pages.

Perl or other scripts (server or browser executed) embedded in your web pages should work fine with a .php suffix.
Translating those perl or other server executed scrips into php codes is another story, and jdavey’s response is your guide.

Almost everybody knows php nowadays and the person who created your pages or maintains your pages must be in the best position to reprogram your pages.

Bear in mind that the end result is everything. If you are satisfied with what you have, don’t look around how to have the same thing with .php.
