Some of the benefits of using PHP:
Codes and scripts written in PHP get executed more quickly. If you compare it with scripts written in JSP and ASP, then the code and scripts written in PHP are executed very fast.

PHP source code is available for free on the Internet. The consumer can observe, modify, and enhance it according to his needs.

PHP code is platform independent: can be run on Windows, Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, etc.

There are many web servers available for PHP, for example Apache, NGINX, or IIS etc.

Cons of using PHP:
Developing a large application with PHP is quite a difficult task because it is not highly modular, due to which it becomes difficult to manage a large application.

PHP is open source, so anyone can see its source code, so if there is a bug in the code, then it can be misused.
