PHP provides high security which doesn’t require big changes to be done during the project development that why it is chosen by the many developers and the companies.

PHP can run on all platforms of the operating system and it gives you the feature that you can deploy the coding of one operating system to another also which doesn’t make any changes to the project.

Why has PHP become so popular than other languages in the Web Development Industry?

PHP stands for the Hypertext Pre-processor. PHP is an open source general-purpose scripting server-side language which is generally used for the web development and can be embedded into the HTML.

I think the father of PHP “Rasmus Lerdorf” never thought that the PHP will become so popular and will get the great heights in the technology market of software, but it happened in the world and now PHP became the most popular server-side scripting language.

So, how PHP is so popular, what’s the reason behind it, we will try to find some reasons out of big options available. Here are some reasons listed which made it great success:

1. Most Popular Scripting Language:

PHP originally became so popular because it was one of the first scripting languages which dynamically generates the contents and executes the request.

The fact is that PHP script can be placed anywhere in the HTML code that will be passed to the server side by the Apache or Nginx and will be executed by the PHP.

2. Maximum Control:

PHP provides more control over the webpage than any other language. Other programming languages need tedious changes if you want to update or need to edit your webpage but with PHP, you can make the changes very easily. PHP embedding with HTML, CSS is very easy and enable the web content to be highly dynamic.

3. Easy and Reliable:

PHP configuration is very easy also the installation takes a few minutes of time with all the setup. You can use it on the Localhost with the server Apache by using the XAMPP/WAMPP/ MAMP server.

If you need to make any changes in the configuration you just have to open the php.ini file in that you can make the changes and apply to your project.

4. Independent of Operating System (Platform Independent):

You can use the PHP on any operating system of your choice according to that you can install the server and Apache and enjoy the project development.

Even you can deploy your code to any other operating system with that operating system configurations. So, you don’t have to worry about the operating system at all.

5. Cost Efficient Development:

Another reason why the PHP is so popular that any time of development you don’t have to give any money because PHP is an open source free development programming language.

Its licensed under the BSD- license so you can use it to make your personal or professional product, web pages, web applications and desktop based (Off-line Console) application.

6. Great Development support:

Since it is open source so can access lots of coding available on the internet. Any time if you get stuck to the coding you just search for that error on the internet and you will get your error to be solved in few seconds because so many developers using it so they post about many things on the internet which you can easily access so this is the main thing that PHP is used a lot in web development industry.

7. Fast Development:

PHP gives you the ability that you can develop the code within a short span of time even for the big projects. It doesn’t take a long time to configure the view part or to configure the database part you only to include all things only once and then you can access it anywhere in the project.

These features help in the fast development of the project, which also considered by the companies to develop any project.PHP 7.0, 7.1 and 7.2 Features

8. Frameworks and Customs Code Libraries:

PHP has a large number of Frameworks (e.g. Zend, Symfony, Cakephp, Yii, Laravel, Codeignitor, Phalcon, Aiki, Silex, Slim, Dispatch – Micro Framework, etc.) and Custom code and libraries (e.g. ReCAPTCHA, Akismet, Services_JSON, pChart, Smarty, XML-RPC PHP Library, SimplePie, PHPMailer, Amazon S3, ImageWorkshop, Snappy, Idiorm, Buzz, Goutte, Ubench, Faker, Mustache, Gaufrette, Omnipay, HTMLPurifier, Creole, PHPExcel, PECL, RedBean, Doctrine, WPGet, Geocoder, Ratchet, Requests, Munee, Opauth, Stash, PHPLINQ, Mimesis, PHP CodeSniffer, phpDocumentor, TCPDF, MPDF, PclZip, Swift Mailer, PHP Debug, Webgrind, Xdebug, PHPUnit, Selenium, Pixy: PHP Security Scanner, phpMyAdmin, PHP-GTK, ShellWrap – Beautiful Shell Wrapper, PHP Geo – Geo Location Library, ColorJizz-PHP – Color Manipulation Library, Gaufrette – File System Abstraction Layer, Filterus – Filtering Library, Carbon – DateTime Library, Underscore – PHP’s Utility Belt, Assetic – Asset Management, Ham – Routing Library with Caching, Klein – Lightning fast router for PHP etc.)  for make development fast, easy and reliable.

In PHP7 type-hint your function parameters with string, int, float, and bool for the extra check.

function getMyTicketNo(int $number) {
    return $number;


// Error raised
PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught TypeError: Argument 1 passed to getMyTicketNo() must be of the type integer, string given ....

2. Return type declarations:

PHP7 support return type declaration for functions.

function divideMyValues(int $firstNumber, int $secondNumber): int {
    $value = $firstNumber / $secondNumber;
    return $value;

echo divideMyValues(5, 6); // Result 0

function makeArraysSum(array $arrays): array
    return array_map(function(array $array): int {
        return array_sum($array);
    }, $arrays);

print_r(makeArraysSum([4,5,6], [7,8,9]));   // Result Array([0] => 15 [2] => 24)

Enable strict mode by placing declare(strict_types=1); at the top of the file and if run it again. It throw php error its called Strong Type Check in PHP7.

3. Null Coalesce Operator:

IT is the same as “isset” use “??” to return the set value (and not null) or an alternative value instead.

$route = $_REQUEST['route'] ?? 'index';

4. Spaceship Operator:

This operator is used to compare two expressions and returns -1, 0 or 1.

// Integers
echo 10 <=> 10; // 0
echo 10 <=> 20; // -1
echo 20 <=> 10; // 1

// Floats
echo 1.55 <=> 1.55; // 0
echo 1.55 <=> 2.55; // -1
echo 2.55 <=> 1.55; // 1
// Strings
echo "x" <=> "x"; // 0
echo "x" <=> "y"; // -1
echo "y" <=> "x"; // 1

5. session_start() Options:

options can be pass to session_start function. This is used for set session based php.ini options.

session_start(['cache_limiter' => 'private']); // set private session.cache_limiter

6. Constant arrays using define():

In PHP7 Array constants can now be defined with define(). In PHP 5.6, they could only be defined with const.

define('EZEELIVE', [ 'NodeJS', 'PHP', 'MobileApp' ]); echo EZEELIVE[1]; // outputs "PHP"

7. intdiv() for Integer division:

var_dump(intdiv(20, 6)); // Result int(3)

8. Throwables:

It is the interface from which the Exception and Error classes branch out. This particular class helps you catch any throwable errors, irrespective of whether they are an exception or an error.

try {
    throw new Exception("This is an exception");
catch (Throwable $e) {
    echo $e->getMessage();
9. CSPRNG(Cryptographically Secure Pseudo-Random Number Generator) Functions:

PHP7 has introduced two random number generation function random_int and random_bytes to generating secure random integers and bytes in cryptographic contexts.

PHP 7.1 Features:

1. Nullable Types:

In PHP 7 type declarations added for parameters and return types, but PHP Community realize that something was missing! Nullable types enable for the specified type to take either that type or null.

function add(?int $a, ?int $b): ?int
    if ($a == null || $b == null) {
        return null;

    return $a + $b;
var_dump(add(null, null)); // NULL
var_dump(add()); // throw ArgumentCountError exception

2. Void return type:

This is the much-awaited function in PHP. You can set void as return type in functions.

function myVoidFunction($parameter): void

3. Iterable pseudo-type:

In PHP 7.1 introduced new pseudo-type as similar to callable. This can use in parameter and return type.

function myIter(iterable $data)
	foreach ($data as $val) {

4. Destructuring Arrays:

list($a, $b, $c) = [1, 2, 3];
var_dump($a, $b, $c); //Result int(1) int(2) int(3)	

5. Catching multiple exception types:

This is required in some cases when required to handle different exceptions in the same way.

try {
    // do something
} catch (MyException_1 $e) {
    // Handle this exception
} catch (MyException_2 $e) {
    // Handle in the same way as MyException_1
} catch (Exception $e) {
    // Handle this in a different way

6. Deprecate and remove mcrypt():

mcrypt library was introduced the first time in 2007. In PHP 7.1, all mcrypt_* functions will raise an E_DEPRECATED notice and in PHP 7.1.1 greater version it will be removed entirely

6. Short open tags are deprecated: Short open tag <? and short echo <?= tag deprecated and will be removed in PHP 8.

Where is PHP6:

The main reason for not having a PHP6 version:

1. PHP 6 had a wider focus than just character encoding.
2. It is up to developers to deal with character encoding issues using mbstring, iconv, uconverter, etc.
3. Full Unicode support using UTF-16 negatively impacted performance.

Is PHP still relevant for application development in 2019?

PHP wouldn’t kick the bucket. Really not for a very long time…

Right off the bat, if we look around the world of web, then we can realize it that more than 50% of websites are based out on PHP.

Many of the CMS such as Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress is built on PHP. On top of that numerous conventional web hosting organizations normally provide shared hosting LAMP based stacks at minimum prices, making it far simpler to set up PHP based web places without getting tensed about server set up and configuration.

For businesses looking for an eCommerce website, it bodes well to go with what functions and set up a PHP based website, rather than instead of experimenting with node.js or different languages that may require the extra push to set up.

PHP – A Case Study

Legacy code tends to codes (programs) or segments of programs drafted in the outdated source code.

Consider, for example, the source codes written for different engineering or business functions that are based on a language that is not supported by any.

In Love with PHPThey function well to complete the original goal but are too expensive and difficult if you want to rewrite in latest codes, so, in this condition, it forces programmers to keep working in the same code if any change required.

PHP came into existence sometimes back and it is an impressive example due to its legacy code is not similar to its latest programs, in what experts accept-is and proponents-say an enormous change.

The co-architect of the Zend engine is Andi Gutmans. The Zend engine is a compiler that came into existence after PHP4 entered.

Andi Gutmans and his companion wanted to enhance PHP3 so that Rasmus Lerdorf the real PHP inventor jointed their team. The outcome we got was a compiler for PHP4 and its descendant, PHP5.

As a result, the PHP at present is really different as compared to its predecessor, the first PHP. However, in Gutmans’ thought, the key of first and conventional code written initially retains operative old biases against the PHP. For example, the idea that PHP is filled with security threats, or that it can’t be able to works well with big computing jobs.

Today, Gutman Says, People who cut down PHP previously should be aware of the latest changes and functions that are available in the language now. To get the full functionality your PHP version should be updated.


You should not conclude the forthcoming time of a programming language if not aware of the tendency of the expert programmers.

To understand the power of PHP we need to consider the latest market trends of PHP as are follows:

  1. There is a very long list of CMS and frameworks that are built and work on PHP such as Drupal, Magento, Joomla, WordPress, etc.
  2. PHP programmers can be easily hired at low cost.
  3. There are numerous PHP experts available so that it is easy to get a PHP Developer.
  4. Maintenance cost is low.
  5. It is one of the simplest server-side scripting languages to learn.
  6. Easy to purchase server and host website developed in PHP. The major hosting company provides PHP Hosting Services.
  7. PHP can work with Major Operating System such as Windows, Linux, MacOSX, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, and Solaris.
  8. You can be developed Desktop or Standalone Application using PHP.

Ultimately, the end user of your web application doesn’t care about the technology that is used to build your app, if it functions well then they will stay and visit you again and again.

What is the need for these 10 key points and why is PHP important?

PHP has come to be recognized as the preferred choice for web and software development due to its robust platform and flexible structure that helps you create your application or web page in the way you want to.

With the increasing popularity of this general-purpose scripting language, several PHP development companies have cropped up like mushrooms.

But very few of these companies actually live up to the expectations of the customer. So here are 10 key points that may help you with your own PHP development company.

1. Prefer OOP:

OOP has made life easy for developers and the fact that PHP allows you to do so should be well exploited. The main reasons for this are as follows.

  • Better reusability of the functions related to a particular type of data
  • Easy to debug and maintain for future development
  • Makes the application less dependent on the features of the server
  • Loads fast and require fewer lines of code

2. Try to avoid the _once() syntax:

Those who have worked with PHP know that anything ending with the above syntax (include_once() and require_once()) can give you fatal errors if the script fails. Moreover, this kills the server resources. What most of the efficient PHP developers do is, they plan their approach to a problem in such a way that they do not actually require them.

3. Always keep error reporting ON:

Small errors in the script can eventually become hard to spot that may prove to be fatal when it comes to real-time applications. Hence, it is always recommended that you keep error reporting to ‘E_ALL’ so that you get notified for the smallest of mistakes. This error reporting should be kept on throughout the development process.

4. If you need it always use a framework:

It is often advised by many developers that even for simple programs a framework may prove to be considerably slower than a normal PHP code. But there are obviously, some benefits that cannot be ignored.

  • It is really helpful for doing the tedious parts of the script
  • It is sometimes unnecessary to write a section of code when there is an efficient solution to the problem for the concerned part

5. Prefer PHP’s built-in functions:

It’s really surprising and disappointing sometimes, to find that the code that you had written for a particular problem could have been done with a built-in function. This reduces your efforts to unnecessarily keep coding for hours and end up with a frustrating result. Always look for built-in functions when you are going forward with a difficult but common problem.

6. Protect your database from internal and external intrusion:

Instead of stating the obvious reason why you need to do this let’s see how you can do this.

  • Use “mysql_real_escape_string()” before adding data to your database
  • Validate all POST and GET strings and never use “$_REQUEST”
  • Always make sure the submitted data is of right type and value

7. Use POST instead of GET:

Although this cannot always be avoided it is necessary to understand that GET is easy to emulate which makes your project vulnerable to attacks by hackers. In the case of form submissions and most of the other cases, the POST provides a safer way.

8. Plan your code before implementing it:

It is a good and recommended habit to plan your code beforehand especially if you are handed a big project. Planning can increase the efficiency of your script and reduce the lines of code, enhancing the performance of the application simultaneously.

9. Understand what the customer needs:

There is always bound to be a communication gap between the developer and the customer but throughout the process of development of the project, it is necessary to get reviews of the progress from the customer to know whether or not the project is advancing in the right direction or not.

10. Do your research work to know the feasibility of the project:

To deliver the best possible solution you need to have knowledge of the elements of the problem domain. Always do thorough research work to know about the complications that may arise afterward on progressing along a certain line of thinking.

PHP 8:

PHP 8.0 release is not yet scheduled, but Some speculation sets the release of PHP 8.0 to be in September 2021:

Zend Technologies has started developing a new JIT (Just-In-Time) Engine for PHP and expecting it will likely be ready for PHP 8.0. JIT is future of PHP to make it for continuously running processes like with Node.js, Python or Java.

Listed below features proposal in PHP8:

1. Just In Time (JIT)
2. mb_ereg_replace() and the mcrypt extension
3. Non-blocking I/O PHP like reactPHP, Swoole
4. pThreads with Easy to Configure and Usage
5. Generics

Please suggest in the comment box what features you are looking in PHP8…

    Nice post, the only problem, that is not true 🙂

    1. No, PHP was not the first server side scripting language. Perl was before, and I bet, there was more.

    2. There are the ASP, and it is easy like PHP.

    3. If you are a real developer, never use XAMP, WAMP, etc… And a normal install could be easy, but when you want add extra things, like memcached, xDebug, etc… you can suck with that for a couple of hours.

    4. Yes, it is independent of operating system. As Java, and some other languages too…

    5-8: It’s true for some other programming languages.

    I think, the poin of why PHP is popular, because you can earn a sense of achievement really quick. And this is a real big problem, because Bobby will think, he can write a cycle and connect to the database, and he is a programmer, while real programmes learn for years.

    Thanks for Sharing Nice Post.

    It’s True that PHP is one of the most popular server-side scripting languages globally. Using this, developers can create complex websites and applications.
