The hypertext preprocessor, also known as PHP, is one of the most widely used programming languages in the world. It was created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994 and at the time it was developed was known as Personal Home Page. PHP version 4.0 was released by Zend in the middle of 1999 and is reportedly used by programmers all over the world.

Despite the fact that millions of websites are still running on PHP today, why is it that developers hate it so much? Rasmus Lerdorf, who created PHP, may not have planned the code for the future because he didn’t know how it would be used. PHP has been around for a long time and has a lot of outdated structures.

Has PHP a bright future? Here is our prediction.

Even though this programming language has been around for a decade and some programmers have tried to move away from it, PHP is still the best choice for quick app development, especially for web-based applications. With PHP, deployment requires only a simple upload, and performance is still excellent. Harkovnet continues to use PHP for our primary infrastructure because it can function well on low-end servers.

Because PHP does not want to fall behind other programming languages in the race, they recently published PHP 8.1, a new version with updated capabilities. The ability for many programmes to run concurrently without a queue is one of the most updated features in those versions. Although PHP may have been late in implementing this functionality because GO and Python did so before it, PHP can now compete with other programming languages thanks to this update.
