I just started learning java to make a website last week.
Now I'm googling across the net and forums, and everyone seems to be recommending php. I looked at stats and java use is way down compared to php, I looked in job websites and there are more php jobs.
Is there a technical reason why I should be considering php in 2013 as opposed to java?
I have done a little java before, but I do have some php books here too.
