PHP can interact with MySQL databases - And in doing this, the possibilities are endless. You can write users information to the database and you can retrieve information from the database. This allows you to create pages on the fly using the contents of the database. You can even do more complex things like setting up a login system, creating a website search feature, or keep your store's product catalogue and inventory online.
PHP, among other server side languages, does things that regular HTML does not do like connecting to a mysql database, storing data on your web server, and running web services that interact with other websites.
HTML cannot do any of that, but PHP creates the HTML dynamically. You can also have multiple web pages by using just one template instead of 20 separate web pages.
