PHP is not dead as most developers use PHP for their exploit websites and PHP takes up 80% of the web servers.

Life is honestly depressing, please enjoy it while you still can. This is coming from a person who had critical depression for 3 years. I'm tired of acting happy all the time. Time to show my colors.

It's still growing, but not being adopted by big-time companies at the rate it used to be. Companies have switched to other technologies like pure C++ for its speed and Javascript for its ease. Walmart, Roblox, and Discord for example. Companies like Facebook still use PHP simply because they're old companies and that's what they were built on. Facebook has been switching to other technologies where they could. It's most certainly not dead though. 

 

I would say PHP is mostly being used because most people aren't really taking the time to learn full-stack development. There are lots of pre-built website setups that are easy to use. CPanel, for example, is everywhere. Almost every hosting website uses CPanel. There are also tons of websites CMS systems like Wordpress which is powered by PHP. The thing is those services were built back when PHP was the go-to. So yeah, these exploiters using CPanel/Wordpress simply don't have a choice. Most of these free exploit websites are not professional website developers.

I know that it's growing. It's just a lot of people in the pfp fourm saying that this fourm haunts them and that pfp is dead. I don't think it is!

Just a heads up, the mention button would be useful when replying to someone. It gives them a notification. I only saw your reply to me because this thread was still at the top of recent threads and I was active.

@2JJ1 Alright, people just call PFP dead for no reason at all. Honestly.
