Is php a requirement for back end web development?

I’m currectly picking up HTML and css and will eventually go on to js, from what I’ve briefly read, I might just be able to use node.js. I’m just unsure of what exactly php is used for and whether I can just use js in its place. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You can’t really compare JS with PHP, because HTML, CSS and JS are client-side languages and PHP is a server-side language. For PHP you need an own or accessible webserver, whereas HTML, CSS and JS just need a local client (browser).
