Out of the box, PHP is designed to seamlessly work with the most commonly used database languages such as MySQL. This allows your web development to run smoothly regardless of the amount of data you are dealing with. Designed specifically to handle large amounts of data on the server-side, PHP fits nicely into the web-development landscape.
One of the advantages to being an older language is that PHP has a massive community of developers, and a wide range of documentation to help you get started using it. There are countless guides and individual message boards to give you the guidance and tools you need to get the most out of PHP. On top of this, there is a huge framework of established functions that can be relied on to build a diverse range of server-side modules and applications.
