      PHP. first of all it is totally free bundle for developer. Next the hosting for php sites is very cheap. Easy to code language and almost integrate with every web server on internet. Do there is not match of ASP with PHP. PHP is at top.

      PHP is much better and runs on both unix and windows, while ASP is really only a windows language.

      ASP is almost gone, now it is ASP.NET. but php is an open source hence freely available

    Probably better to read about them and come to your own conclusions.

    PHP easier and it's cheaper to host it. But it depends on what you need.

    I'd say the only correct answer is: it depends on the project.

    PHP is better because it supports Wordpress in which sites can built easily and quickly and even owner can manage it easily after development through Admin panel.

      1) I agree, Asp is better than Php, I can program in about 30 languages, including Classic Asp 3.0 and PHP, so i know what i'm talking.
      2) Asp runs also in Linux the same way Php runs in IIS 6.0 - 7.0, with some extra configuration
      3) Asp is more secure, the Php dependences make it open to easy hacking Php websites, in the previous versions we could even hack a php website only with a ridiculous cooquie manipulation

      If you can't buy software you will always go for the freeware talking,
      linux instead of the powerful MS Webservers
      MySql instead of SQL and Oracle
      Apache Webserver instead of IIS technologies
      Php instead of Asp and Asp.net
      Javascript instead of JScript which is more powerful but the lazy of Firefox do not suport it
      Java as Developping language instead of C++ which can make fantastic Windows games that everyone likes to play, like the FPS...etc
      Open Office that runs always to catch MS Office

      You know something! i did learn in life that every language is good for anything, lets love our favorite without saying is better than others that we do nnot know how to work.

      No offense, Love you all

    I'd prefer PHP any day; so simple and easy to write in, and such a ridiculous wealth of open source sample code out there.  The only situation that would change that, is if I were working in a shop that needed to place a front-end on an already Microsoft-dense operation.  And even then I'd think twice.

    I dont think you can say which is better, as it all depends on what you need to do.  Its like asking whats a better drive, a bugatti veyron or a landrover?  You might say bugatti but then what if I said the drive is over a rocky landscape.  Now your answer should hopefully be a landrover. Depends tottally on what you need it for.

    Great question. I coded ASP for a years, but PHP has more support for its open source features and there are just better more secure websites out there with PHP.

    PHP! across the board integration, speed and functionality.
    I am even using PHP to integrate data into CSS.
    Can't do that with ASP.

    According to me, PHP is better an easier than ASP.

    we don't need to buy additional packages in PHP like ASP.
