I'm reviewing some softwae at AJ Classifieds that reads "AJ Classifieds is a professionally developed PHP Classifieds script that was built with you - the site owner"   What is a script?  

Also, is there a command I can use to find out what other customers on the internet are running the same software?

Since PHP is not compiled, a php server process is called a script instead of a program.
So a PHP script is a set of exectable instructions in a file starting with <?PHP and ending with ?>

Have a look here: http://php.net/

Is a script a complete program?  For example, am I getting the complete web site software noted on the site or just the  php script?

It is a poorly worded statement

You will likely receive a SET of scripts - probably numbering from 10-100 files excluding templates and including administrative files.

Read it: Web Space: Minimum 10 MB (for system without any Data. 1GB is recommended because the system may have lot of product images).

So you will receive a LOT of files :)

As I said - I am sure you will get the collection of scripts to do admin and execute the processes needed

The above statement does not answer the question I am asking.   The question is:
"Is a script a complete program/website?  For example, am I getting the complete web site software including Html coding noted on the site or just the  php script? "

I agree that the original question was answered correctly.  However, I added the following additional comment which I felt was not answered.  "Is a script a complete program?  For example, am I getting the complete web site software noted on the site or just the  php script? "  I wanted to know if a script is the actual website, including the html.   I was not aware that I should close the ticket based only on the original question, because due to the response I recieved, I was adding a more detailed description of what I was looking for.  

Also, I just noticed from the original question that the second part of the question was not answered.  It is as follows:

Also, is there a command I can use to find out what other customers on the internet are running the same software?

And to answer the second question which got sort of lost in the semantic discussion: if I understand your question correctly you want to identify if other people are running the same software. If they have uniquely identifiable filenames, then you can try to google for such a name. Or if the sites advertise "built on software XYZ" However it is not likely and again something much more easy to answer by the producers of the software.
