  • If you are getting started with PHP, start with the current stable release of PHP 5.6. PHP has added powerful new features over the last few years. For eg:
    -Object-oriented Programming
    -Functional Programming
    -Meta Programming

    Though the incremental version number difference between 5.2 and 5.6 is small, it represents major improvements.

    At the time of writing this, PHP 7 is quite supported and already available on all major web hosting platforms. We`ve transferred all of our client sites (WordPress) to PHP 7, and benchmarks show that the speed has doubled and memory consumption fell sharply. Can`t recommend it enough. There were some incompatibilities with some plugins, but we straightened them out. So far, so good.
