Discussion on: Why do you still use Php?

My website is proudly powered by PHP, without any frameworks or databases. Compared to 2008, most of the website is static now, but there are some dynamic sections, such as the list of random blog posts on the homepage that refreshes automatically.

PHP is easy to deploy. I upload the script to a folder under nginx, and it works.

For every Node or Go service, I have to (1) assign IP address and port, (2) start the service via pm2 or systemd, (3) configure reverse proxy in nginx or Cloudflare.

Agreed. You have to restart everytime a new code is added in other languages
