Reasons behind popularity of open source language for PHP Web Application Development

PHP as an open source language has gained more popularity from PHP developers and PHP programmers because of its more interactive approach than HTML. Not only it is very fast, secure, economical, and efficiently manages the data but PHP codes can also be incorporated very easily. Moreover, another reason behind its popularity is that a web developer can download it free of cost and customize it according to the project requirements. Several business owners and big corporate are attracted towards PHP custom web application development due to its easy availability and flexible terms and conditions.

Additionally, PHP is highly scalable, can operate over multiple web servers, and offers excellent support for various databases development, including MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Oracle, SQLite, PostGreSQL, etc. It is also supported by database languages such as MY SQL2.0, SQL, etc. to create database tables which makes it a language of choice for web development projects in both open source and commercial environments. PHP also works well with the range of business database such as Oracle and IBM DB2.

The compatibility factor of PHP is very high and dynamic web portals can be created at a very fast pace with the help of it. It is also very secure and the simplicity of its design and interface makes PHP an easy language to understand. In addition, to make the web application secure from virus and spyware attacks, the security functions combined with the technical support are available worldwide. Moreover, it is available without any license value. The entire platform of PHP is independent and its language policies and terms fall under the General Public License making it open for all developers.

Further, the inclusion of unit and functional testing modules has enhanced the popularity of PHP. The reason being these modules help developers to effectively research an application and conduct testing to highlight the usage of application. Web Programmers can also easily modify the PHP coding as per their requirements with many forums and groups to discuss errors that creep in at the time of development. It helps developers to use the same style and standard as the framework for their coding. To conclude, it can be said that the demand of web developers has also increased with the advent of PHP as they find it hugely compatible to create high quality web applications at a minimal cost.
