    PHP scripting is definitely one of the easiest, if not the easiest scripting language to learn and grasp for developers. This is partially due to the similarities PHP syntax has with C and Java. Even if the only knowledge of development that you have is with HTML, picking up PHP is still fairly easy. For developers just starting out, PHP is often the first scripting language they learn because it?s clear and easy to understand.

    Compared to other languages and especially compared to web frameworks, PHP is lower level, less abstract, and more transparent. There is little 'magic' that's running behind the scenes that makes your code work. This can be an advantage when you want to understand in detail what is going on on in your code. When programming in a more complicated framework, you may have to wade through a morass of classes, subclasses, mixins, and 'clever' abstractions to figure out what is actually happening behind the scenes. PHP is much simpler, and if a program is well written (a big if), it's often easier to deduce exactly what it does and how it does it.

    Designed in a user friendly manner, PHP gives more flexibility than C, C++ and ASP and overall helps in increasing traffic to the site.

    Rasmus Lerdorf wrote the first PHP - first called Personal Home Page - scripts as a series of Perl scripts that he used to track visitors to his webpage and to see who was viewing his resume. He eventually rewrote PHP as a scripting engine and added support for forms. Over the years the Personal Home Page acronym was dropped and it evolved into the PHP Hypertext. PHP can be used to create web applications ranging from personal websites to e-commerce applications and community web portals i.e. disucssion forums, blogs etc.

    1: Simple and easy to learn

    PHP scripting is definitely one of the easiest, if not the easiest scripting language to learn and grasp for developers. This is partially due to the similarities PHP syntax has with C and Java. Even if the only knowledge of development that you have is with HTML, picking up PHP is still fairly easy. For developers just starting out, PHP is often the first scripting language they learn because it?s clear and easy to understand.

    2: Support

    The last thing you want as a developer is to be ?stuck? with a coding issue and not have anywhere to go for help or answers. Since PHP is so popular and widely used, finding help or documentation for PHP online is extremely easy. The best part is the support is free through forums, PDFs, blogs, and social media. The fact that it?s open source also contributes to the large support community of PHP and LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) in general. PHP has the largest user base of any scripting language.

    3: Freedom

    When comparing PHP to a language such as ASPX, the level of freedom you get is far superior. As mentioned in reason #2, PHP is open source. You can use any text editor in order to code PHP such as Notebook++, jEdit, Emacs, Bluefish, or even just Notepad if you feel inclined. If you want to develop applications with ASPX, you?re going to be limited to Microsoft Visual Studio. Restrictions are never a good thing, especially with coding.

    PHP also isn?t OS specific. You can run PHP on:

    – Linux

    – Mac OSX

    – Windows

    – UNIX

    4: Free

    There are no costs associated with using PHP, including updates. Keeping costs down is a goal of any business and developers as well. So the fact that you can code programs with PHP for free is a huge benefit that you won?t get with JPS, ASP, or other scripting languages that require paid hosting. There are no licenses, restrictions, or royalty fees involved at all. PHP is 100% free for anyone to use.

    5: Integration

    PHP is used for so many web applications and actually powers over 30% of the web. Systems such as MongoDB, Memcache, and Pusher all integrate with PHP. Almost any industry you can think of uses PHP applications in some fashion including banks, hospitals, government, and large corporations.

    6: Frameworks

    Almost every benefit of PHP seems to go back to the fact that the community is so large. The number of PHP frameworks available is even further proof of how strong the PHP community is. Whether you?re looking for database access libraries, session management, or code reuse, you will have no problem finding PHP frameworks to give you a helping hand. Some popular PHP frameworks include:

    – Aiki

    – Symfony

    – Zend

    – Silex

    – Slim

    7: Easier to fix problems

    When it comes to web application development, you?re bound to run into issues and come across the occasional ?fail?. But the benefit you get with PHP is that problems aren?t as difficult to find and fix as they are with other languages. This is because with each request, PHP cleans up and starts over. So an issue with one request will not necessarily disrupt another.

    8: Scalability

    In the world of IT, the word scalability is like gold. Whether you?re dealing with databases, hosting, or in this case, programming, scalability is never a bad thing. Due to the way PHP is built, you can easily increase your cluster size by adding more servers as your projects grow.

    9: Object Oriented

    PHP actually has the ability to call Java and Windows COM objects. In addition to this, you can create custom classes. Other classes can actually borrow from those custom classes as well which extends the capabilities of PHP even further.

    10: Speed

    Since PHP does not use a lot of a system?s resources in order to run, it operates much faster than other scripting languages. Hosting PHP is also very easy and lot of hosts provide support for PHP. Even when used with other software, PHP still retains speed without slowing down other processes. Being that PHP is a mature language, it is also fairly stable because all the kinks have been worked out over the years.

    This is something that not everyone is going to agree on but I think that another reason that PHP is so popular is because it is easy to obtain a free hosting account.

    Many young students who wish to get into web development choose PHP because setting up a server online will cost them nothing and so they can play around with it / learn about it for free.

    Although there are free hosting options for other languages (java, ruby, .net), they are much harder to come by.

    A popular choice in today’s web world is using PHP. PHP is a general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to server-side web development where PHP generally runs on a web server. Its clarity in design, well organized modules and better upkeep of various technologies, make it the most popular language in the online industry today. Its popularity and credibility can be gauged by the fact that reputed organizations like Harvard University and popular social Networking site Facebook, both are based on PHP. This is possible because PHP websites can be easily maintained, improved and updated from time to time.

    PHP web development means developing websites and dynamic web pages using the versatile and capable server-side scripting language, PHP. It offers a plethora of benefits. Not only is it open-source but also feature-rich and has all the functionality that a proprietary or paid scripting language would offer. Here are a few benefits that have made PHP web development so sought after.
    #1 – Free of Cost

    PHP is open source and is developed and updated by a community of developers from around the globe. Therefore, all its components are free to use and distribute.
    #2 – Capable

    It can be used to design any type of website and can handle websites with a lot of traffic. Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia and many other very widely visited websites use it as their framework. And because it is server-side scripting, it can do anything that other CGI programs can do.
    #3 – Easy

    It has a readable and easily understandable syntax. Its code is embedded in the HTML source code and it is based on C/C++. Therefore, it is very familiar and programmers are very comfortable coding with it.
    #4 – Platform Independent

    It can be run on all major operating systems like Linux, UNIX, Mac OS and Windows.
    #5 – Supports All Major Web Servers

    It supports all major web servers like Apache, Microsoft IIS, Netscape, personal webserver, iPlanet server, etc.
    #6 – Supports All Major Databases

    IT supports all major databases including MySQL, dBase, IBM DB2, InterBase, FrontBase, ODBC, PostgreSQL, SQLite, etc.
    #7 – Faster Developments

    It uses its own memory space and thus decreases the loading time and workload from the server. The processing speed is fast and web applications like Ecommerce, CRM, CMS and Forums are also developed faster by it.
    #8 – Secure

    It has multiple layers of security to prevent threats and malicious attacks.
    #9 – Large Communities

    It has a large community of developers who regular and timely updates tutorials, documentation, online help and FAQs.
    #10 – Proven and Trusted

    It is being used since close to two decades now since its inception in 1995. It is trusted by thousands of websites and developers and the list is increasing day by day. It has also proven its capability and versatility by developing and maintaining some of the most highly visited and popular websites.

    Choose PHP development for a fully-functional, dynamic and robust website and a much better web experience.

    Compared to other languages and especially compared to web frameworks, PHP is lower level, less abstract, and more transparent. There is little 'magic' that's running behind the scenes that makes your code work. This can be an advantage when you want to understand in detail what is going on on in your code. When programming in a more complicated framework, you may have to wade through a morass of classes, subclasses, mixins, and 'clever' abstractions to figure out what is actually happening behind the scenes. PHP is much simpler, and if a program is well written (a big if), it's often easier to deduce exactly what it does and how it does it.
    Easy for beginners to pick up
    Can be hosted nearly everywhere.
    By default there is a 1-1 correspondence between URLs and files, making it easy for designers, programmers, and other team members to edit and create pages. This is especially useful on large, mostly static content sites where there are hundreds and thousands of content pages, many one-offs and different templates, and routing everything through a router, controllers and views would be overengineering.
    Scaling PHP is relatively common knowledge.
    Easy to deploy: just copy the files (or if you are more sophisticated, rsync the files, svn up the files, or git pull the files)
    Has frameworks with a relatively easy learning curve
    Documentation is excellent
    Easy to oursource development - there are many coders around the world willing to code PHP inexpensively
    If you are creating software that needs to be deployed to a wide variety of hosting environments (such as Wordpress or forums) PHP is the lingua franca of web hosting companies and will work nearly everywhere.
