I need to update PHP for my webshop.

Haven’t used that clusterfuck of a programming language in quite a while and by now, it seems, even the PHP community has figured out, that it is probably a good idea to keep your application code out of the webroot after all. Of course, that means producing HTML output from templates instead of parsing HTML files with embedded code. But what was the unique selling point of PHP again? Oh, right!

It’s probably high time to finally retire PHP and forget that it ever existed…
