In our opinion, the PHP language has 3 significant and characteristic advantages:
PHP code can be embedded directly into an HTML document. There will be no problems with compilation and compatibility. Thanks to this, you can add innovations and scripts to a ready-made site by simply inserting the code. But of course, you will have to take care of how this new piece of code will interact with the site and databases.

The language is quite simple, learning is given to many without much difficulty. This is argued by the code, in which, not as often as in classical programming languages, it is necessary to come up with your own algorithms and scripts to solve the task. Roughly speaking, PHP is first a language, and only then programming. Thanks to this, it is accessible even to people who are far from mathematics and its terminology.
But note that learning in PHP is easier only at the first stages (compared to other languages). Subsequently, it will be just as difficult as with other options.
PHP is a very practical language. The tasks set on it can be solved efficiently and quickly, and most importantly, these are direct solutions, without inventing a fifth wheel.
In programming, there is a term "shoot yourself in the foot”, which means creating a bigger problem in the process of solving a smaller one (everyone interprets differently). So it is possible to ”shoot yourself in the foot" in PHP less often than in other general-purpose languages.
