    web3 api based on javascript can be used to communicate with blockchain smart contracts. You can also use AJAX method to send data from javascript to php after invoking the contract method from web3.

Ethereum comes up with a javascript API called - Web3

Brief description -

To make your app work on Ethereum, you can use the web3 object provided by the web3.js library. Under the hood it communicates to a local node through RPC calls. web3.js works with any Ethereum node, which exposes an RPC layer.

Here is the link for your reference - https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/JavaScript-API

You might combine JS fronted technology like web3js for user interaction and verify on PHP-library level.
