Open Source PHP Usage Tops 244 Million Sites


When I first started building websites in the late 90’s, PHP was my tool of choice. Though many things have change on the web since then, PHP’s popularity has not changed, it has grown.

A new report from Netcraft puts the current tally as of January 2013 for PHP sites on the web at a staggering 244 million sites. In context that’s nearly 40 percent of the 630 million total sites on the web today.
